I think for now, idea of keyboarding and mousing data with computer would continue for a while until a well tested and comfortable alternative is surfaced and accepted by all works of life.

@adenniji @Anandvy, so if there is still movement, it would help people who are paralyzed, I suppose. But it can help people who suffer from athritis, as a gesture takes less effort than a click. It can also appeal to people who worry about picking up and spreading germs from coming in direct contact with keys.

@Anandvy,

Could it be that the only difference is that you are not actually punching something but there ia still the movement of the hand or fingers

Which means that to some extent, there will still be the movement of the fingers?

@Adenji, yes there will be some movement of the fingers. These gestures can help us interface with different devices pretty easily.

well, it may still take some time from now befor one could predict but then hardly is there any technology designed to last forever.

so is there really any less movement compared to using a mouse or keyboard?

@Clairvoyant, definitely there is lot less movement compared to the mouse/keyboard but most important feature of this technology is flexibility. The technology consista of an array of LEDs mounted on a plastic wrist brace facing the palm bounce infrared light off the user's fingers. A laser shines across the hand to highlight the orientation of the fingers. A camera then reads the reflections, and software builds a model of the moving hand that is accurate to within one hundredth of a centimetre.

I don't quite follow how this inreface works. You say it tracks hand movements, so is there really any less movement compared to using a mouse or keyboard?

Keyboard and mouse which were part of PC for at least 30 year may soon become obselete. Two gesture-sensing technologies set to drastically reduce the amount of typing and clicking needed to control the average computer. By tracking hand movements precisely, the wrist-mounted prototype of the Digits project, built by a team from  Cambridge, UK, allows gestures to be communicated in real time to any connected device. Do you agree that such technology will eventually replace keyboard and mouse ?
