Bits and Pieces

The following are some of the innovations that have generated interest in recent times:

> "...IBM and Microsoft are developing new interfaces and wireless connectivity protocols to help bring Tablet PCs into their own. IBM's SHARK (Shorthand-Aided Rapid Keyboarding) uses regularly-used letter and word combinations and an educational interface to teach users to enter text and words more quickly, displaying popular combinations in a hexagonal on-screen interface and using a graffiti-like shorthand called sokgraphs." [says Engadget]

> While that's that, here comes another idea from Hitachi: Shadow Interface.

"The prototype uses technology developed by the company's Human Interaction Laboratory that reacts to shadows cast upon the table. The display itself is a Hitachi high-def LCD projector, the CP-X328J, which projects the equivalent of a 42-inch screen onto the table."

> Virtual keyboards like the one from Israel-based VKB

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
