Our homes and workplaces are going to become a lot smarter in the future. The Dynamic Desktop shows you what you can expect. This is a touchscreen desktop that lets you use tangible objects to unlock controls. You can connect personal devices and share them with gestures. The underlying software tracks objects you put on the screen. You can also put common objects on the display to augment them with new virtual features.
As the video shows, digital objects can recognize physical objects and get out of the way. For this particular demonstration, an Ideum multitouch table was used. I don’t know about you, but I would love for my computer to have similar features.
