10/GUI Multi-Touch Interface: Even better than Apple’s mighty mouse? [video]

Do you remember the first time you pinched an iPhone? Do you remember how efficient, simple and ingenious being able to do that felt? Now try to imagine what you can do to a computer if all your 10 digits are released from the 30 year old shackles of the mouse.

With Apple’s introduction of the new Mighty Magic Mouse, they are exploring the multi-touch frontier for computers and so far it looks promising. 10/GUI takes things to a totally different level. This idea is so logical, so simple, so natural that it’s one of those things that people will be saying to themselves “why didn’t I think of that?“. Hopefully we will be able to see it become a reality soon.

Do you think that such types of new Human-Computer Interfaces will become mainstream in the future?
