Man-Computer Interface Reimagined

We've all grown watching computer user interfaces change over the years. From text-only terminals to graphic user interfaces with its multiple windows.

But, as things keep evolving, is it time to re-think even those basic concepts?

Watch the following video on how things might look like in the not so distant future.

10/GUI from C. Miller on Vimeo.


  1. The multitouch pad approch seems really nice. The kind of ribbon with all the windows seems restrictive, though.
    Lots of times I work with two or three windows arranged on the screen. Some applications need just a tiny square while others a rectangle, etc.
    With the ribbon proposed here, it gets awkward to work with multiple applications (the opposite as it should), don't you think?

  2. Well, that's why it's just a concept video, to give new ideas on how future interfaces might be.

    Somewhere along the way, someone will come up with a truly revolutionary(or evolutionary) idea that is both feasible and practical for everyday use... and we'll be here waiting for it. :)
