The Future is here...which is bad news for the mouse

Touch UI is coming to the common PC form.  Or at least that's what Window's is planning for 2009 for the operating system Windows 7.  This article focuses on the business aspects of the advances in touch interface and mentions some pretty nifty ideas.  MS Paint with touch is kind of an old idea that has already taken form on interactive whiteboards but still a fun notion.  Imagine, someday we may have an office completely devoid of mice and mouse pads.

You know what this means right?  We aren't very far from holograms in the workplace.
