The future of UI? I’m not so sure.

This TED talk I expect will get most UI/UX designers excited, as it should have me, but it didn’t. Some of the applications, like the wind tunnel and shadow/reflection architectural modeling, I think are fantastic but the “minority report” style interface I don’t see becoming ubiquitous at all. As cool as I think the interface is I just can’t see myself going to work and spending 8 hours a day standing up waving my hands and moving my body. We struggle to stay standing up for 10 minutes at work when we do our team stand-ups and a mice and keyboard sometimes feel like too much effort. And those images that he scans through, give me a search field and a scrollbar any day.
