Where user interfaces are heading to

Here it is, the future of UIs (flash 8/9 required). The day that everyone will have a minimum 30″ touchscreen LCD with a minimum of 1920×1080 resolution in front of him is not that far off. I do expect Mac OS X to be the first OS that will push that envelope fully and OS-wide (Microsoft is by nature less attracted to new things because their main market is mostly businesses — and businesses don’t want major changes in the way they work). Of course, the WIMP interface won’t go away completely, you still need a thin-enough pointer for pixel-perfect work (be it a mouse or a tablet).
