    All that we know is far more touchscreen technology so that using a physical keyboard and mouse would be irrelevant. Some guy did make a prototype of this touchscreen technology and showed it to the world in a California tech show a while ago.

    Re: Ideas for redesigning the "desktop"...

    i feel like contributing but i think my idea is too complicated to describe in words so im going to make a mock up animation. yey! but the basic input system is a projected multitouch screen (which i dont have which is why it will be a mock up) it will be used for every thing, and also i banishing the idea of individual apps and with them- "windows". im off to set this mock up in motion with everyones favourite opensource program- blender (yes, i know its not everyones favourite).
    EDIT: oops, spoke too soon, seems i will have to use flash, it will be easier.

    Flux/black/openbox with tabbed window browsing and 4 desktops is, quite frankly, perfection

    i have just found:
    it is very hard to think of ideas for new desktops without mice when you are sitting in front of one that has a mouse.

    Seems Microsoft is researching multi-sensitive interfaces aswell. The MS Surface project seems very promising:

    Let's hope we get an opensource variant aswell!

    damn it i hate that my wife and kid keeps touching the monitor constantly... I spend hours clean it!

    That seems to require either non-sweeting human beens or a constant cleaning cloth close to the computer.

    ( but i liked the idea of painting with real fingers or get kids painting with they own hands )

    what we need is a project that wil aim to create a 3d image from two cameras creating a stereoscopic machine vision. this is a much cheaper alternative to the current multitouch systems though it certainly doesnt replace them.
    btw, is there an alternative to rear projecting an FTIR which is cheaper and more energy efficient.
