    Touchscreens are sloppy -- at best.
    Maybe in another 3 - 5 years?

    I don't use them. If I had a Galaxy Tab S or Book, I may like the touch screen for some uses.

    My partner Karen has a tablet and likes the touch screen. It seems most convenient for this size device.

    With my *fat fingers* most clicks on a touch screen are accidental.
    In fact, from what I have read; 30% to 50% of ad clicks are accentual -- but an advertiser pays for them.
    If you watched that vid -- what about a virtual holographic keyboard in place a tiny POS that one of my finger tips will cover 4 keys :eek:

    voice is text is goofy unless you speak like Stephen Hawking's voice machine did :eek: Robotalk

    Oh, geez. I already hit stuff I don't mean to, I can just see the mess I'd be in with that if I got an itchy finger while using it. :D

    I'm curious as to whether or not a person sitting next to you is able to input their movements. This could be an interesting invention, even if I'm not sure that I would use it.

    Cripes, by then I'll either be dead or senile, which could make for some very interesting computing. :D
