Predictive Automation
Mainframe smart enough to figure out/predict what you want can do it for you, thus eliminating need for interaction
Simon Personal Communicator:

The Evolution of Touch!
Early Era
Alto personal computer by Xerox PARC demonstrated exactly the first GUI.
Alto used so familiar to modern users windows, icons, menus, and it was operated with a mouse to issue basic commands. Moreover this computer was the first one that embraced the desktop metaphor.
The Button
The button technology helped us communicate with machine for the first time
Siri (2011)
- The intelligent personal-assistant software in Apple's iPhone 4S
- the evolution of voice commands
- Interprets natural speech to answer questions
- Make recommendations and perform actions
(Example: sending messages and scheduling meetings)
The Future of Interaction
From Push --> Touch --> Swipe --> Command --> Gesture --> ???
Touching what we want
What if we only touched things as gestures of emotion and comfort?
Touchless Future
All technology trends towards automation
Apple Iphone:
multi touch interface
large touchscreen
did not have native app support
app store
exploded in sales for the iPhone 3G
simply buttons have made our lives a lot easier as we were finally communicating with machine and lined the commands for them to do it for us
The first GUI Windows 1.0 for MS-DOS was released also in 1985. And the end of the era was brilliantly finished in 1990, when Microsoft Windows put on the market Windows 3.0, based on Common User Access – this product became very popular and opened the next stage of GUI development.
Early Era
By 2015 - Evolved Voice and Advanced Gesture Interaction
By 2015 - Graphine Cell Phone Charging Has Enabled "Always on" interaction

The Future of Interaction
From Push --> Touch --> Swipe --> Command --> Gesture --> ???
By 2020 - "Simple Tech" evolves and uses last generations interaction
By 2020 - Advanced procedures done by robots using touch and interaction
The Future of Interaction
From Push --> Touch --> Swipe --> Command --> Gesture --> ???
By 2025 - 3D scanning and advanced recognition software opens up
new possibilities: Auto door unlocks, voice and gesture unlocks.
The Future of Interaction
The REAL Next Generation of Human CPU and GUI Interaction
By 2025 - Thoughts are used frequently to interact with technology
- thought texting, typing, reviewing
- thought sharing and "hivemind" workplace tasking
- emotion sharing

By 2030 - Our hands are used less and less as tools, and more for human interactions
- hands are used to enjoy things with
- touching anything becomes more intimate
- labour jobs still exist and havent changed much
automatic doors
automatic sinks
Button came in many different forms
As this button trend led to what would be our first computer
Even a simple click for this presentation was from a use of a button
The Revolution
Mattel MindFlex (2009)
- an early glimpse of mind control's capabilities
- a headset( uses the player's brainwaves )
- a fan built into the device is triggered by the player's brainwaves

as the single arrow button, move forward in the presentation
As a simple press, a command is inputted and the machine will do such command
Wouldn't it be great if we could control all our technology without touching it at all?
Just think, a single press of a button, could help you do math. An equation so long your head was going to explode
Microsoft Kinect & Ps3 Move
Kinect & Move:
- Gave players hands-free control of the gaming console
- The device uses 3-D motion capture
- voice input
- facial recognition
This interaction with technology as made it into a huge thing
Not Just For Fun!
Is this the future of interaction
with all technology?
Ask Siri Maybe?
Touch Screen
Became wildly popular on handhelds after Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007
a display screen that is sensitive to the touch of a finger or stylus
one of the easiest to use and most intuitive of all computer interfaces
allows users to navigate a computer system by touching icons or links on the screen.
human2human 70% communication done through physical presence
