We raised our voices at the crossmedia conference PICNIC06

Masters of Media at PICNIC06

We raised questions at the conference such as:

  • Gestural interfaces sound swell, but what if you are disabled? (John Underkoffer about G-speak)
  • Aren’t brainwaves more practical and less tiring for controlling an computer in the near future?
  • How do gestural interfaces work when you’re in a small space?
  • How do you envision g-speak at home or at work (in the office) where there may not be enough physical space to properly navigate & isn’t g-speak physically taxing after a while?
  • (add more)

    I asked –> how do you envision g-speak at home or at work (in the office) where there may not be enough physical space to properly navigate + isn’t g-speak physically taxing after a while?

    Hmm, I still have to buy some bakingpaper (is that the right translation?). Anyone got a manual on how to not screw up the awardwinning t-shirt design? :)
