Why 3-2-1 Contact?<br /><ul><li>Making "contact" with computers and other digital devices a more human, intuitive experience
Hoping this breakout session can capture the "aha" moments that the original show inspired</li></li></ul><li>Keyboards<br /><ul><li>Mechanical "key punch" post industrial revolution
Full typewriter style keyboards with punch cards post WW2
Remain popular with punch cards until 1970s when punch cards were replaced by terminal and graphic video displays</li></ul>"IBM 029 Keypunch" via ookaboo.com<br />Mouse<br /><ul><li>American Inventor, Douglas Engelbart, patented in 1970 as 2 axis input device
Other digitizers that used a slate to map to a screen</li></ul> <br />"Electrical-Engineering1" via zimbio.com<br /><ul><li>Touch screens were first officially conceived in the late 60's and patented by U of K in early 70's

That Was Then:<br />There have been any number of peripherals for talking to our machines for specialized tasks<br /> <br /><ul><li>some like light-pen or motion and camera controlled</li></ul> <br /><ul><li>others mundane like keyboard, mouse, and game pad</li></li></ul><li>This Is Now:<br /><ul><li>Now we are seeing a large variety of industries moving towards peripherals/software that allow more natural use.
The commonality is the input. From the iPhones IOS, Android, Wacom, Smartboard, Playstation Move, Xbox Kinect to Microsoft Windows. The goal is of ease of use. When you stop worrying about the OS you can be a better user</li></li></ul><li>No longer are we just using simple peripherals with limited use, instead we have engaging computer interactions that allows the user full control of the Operating System<br />
Why touchscreen , multi-touch, and stylus?<br />Captures a wide stroke of related technology that abandons the keyboard and mouse<br />Moving towards a more human/intuitive use of machines<br /><ul><li>easier to point with a finger than use a mouse </li></ul>Allowing economic/effective use<br /><ul><li>shorter time using programs
ability to collaborate more effectively</li></li></ul><li>TouchScreens<br />Desktops<br /><ul><li>Asus EeeTop
HP Smart Touch</li></ul>eReaders<br /><ul><li>Nook
Apps</li></li></ul><li>Pinch-Swipe-Rotate-Expand-Flick<br />"It immediately enables multiple users to interact with a shared display, the interface simply disappears. <br />Here's a lightbox app. Dragging photos around. Two fingers at once, I can start zooming, rotating, all in one really seamless motion. It's neat because it's exactly what you expect would happen if you grabbed this virtual photo here. All very seamless and fluid."<br />-Jeff Han at ETech, 7 Mar 2006 <br />mobiledia.com<br />tgdaily.com<br />1800pocketpc.com<br />
