with the emergence of ppu in pc, i was thinking about a thing.
can it be possible to make a physical user interface

i explain, graphics are always here, but the idea is to make an interface thats interact like all the physical objets we use to work, not like "windows like" gui. with intelligent arangement of the desktop and more

sure, it's a GUI
but the particularity of such a PUI is to provide a "realistic" interface

so, i let you reflect about it
probably it's a shitty idea
probably not

it's just a new born idea
i don't have any idea how to define this

Sounds like one of those things that's fun for a couple of hours, which you then disable because it's basically useless Smile

Have you seen the pop up menu of that desktop? I was thinking about that disk menu some time ago!! (but with an empty center so there is no default option selected, something like a donut but flattened)

That's a good idea - would surely reduce error selections. I use a touch screen daily and find pressure gestures difficult - tap, tap, tap, ... seems to work much faster while being less error prone.

I'd like to see the HD and memory as one big multi-layered cache to the web. Of course, private data could remain unpublished, but common files could all be repaired by the closest availible machine with the file cached. New versions of files would just propagate across the web without need for install - of course, this could be turned off.

There is the potential for problems, but most of them could be resolved as fast as they are created. Also, it minimizes bandwidth problems - your neighbors watches the same movie as you then they could provide sources for the movie.

How do we get around security and ownership? I think we have to throw those ideas in the trash when dealing with information - the concepts are only applicable in the physical world.

Back in the dark ages of bbs's before the internet I had an interface like that on my bbs in rip and robo graphics (big desk, file cabnets, in and out box, games on the shelf, notices on papers on the desk). Every one thought it was really cool, but the stats showed most people quit using the graphics part after a few months. If it makes it easer I think people keep using it, if it's just cool it gets old.

I agree, was using compiz on my desktop for like a week.. .then it just became pointless. Nice rigid windows feel lots better and the transparencies changing were just doing my head in Very Happy.
But it did achieve one purpose -> did impress my family ^^ Very Happy.

That does look like a very nice OS, but what I have always been thinking is about an in-air kind of projected semi-transparent screen. With new materials being developed it may be possible to have infrared light projected onto this aqua-feeling screen, with a projector hidden below. This idea is totally possible, it would just take a lot of money and time to develop. The OS I was thinking would be perfect for this is one where the information is present on the far left and right sides of the screen, and in the middle is a "main window" place where you can do all of your working and such. A perfect example of this is shown in a movie, but I forgot it's name lol. If any of you remember which one it was, it is occassionally shown in the U.S. In some futuristic world, three somehow (mind)birth-defected children can see murders before they happen, if you would like to check I remember one of the main future-seers is "agatha". A computer that uses this futuristic OS and hardware is seen in some parts. He would quickly drag little icons of movies into the center part of the screen, which would play them, and do so many things at once with his hands. I believe this would be the perfect fururistic-OS and hardware for computing.

i don't like how they all laugh.
it's not a one man show, but they laugh.
why do they laugh?
probably because they are stupid, and by the mean they show they are intelligent. or it's a popular american broadcast, an if they don't laugh, nobody will watch this. they are too much used to see bad things like THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW.
it's ridiculous.

the ingineer who demonstrate is really in a bad position.
he cannot show anything whitout having a battery of noise.
