Mouse Getting Killed Off in 5 Years?
Well, that’s what Gartner analyst Steve PrenticeÂ has predicted.
His opening gambit was that the mouse
“works fine in the desktop environment but for home entertainment or working on a notebook it’s over”
He does reckon that the keyboard is here for a long time but
“the idea of a keyboard with a mouse as a control interface is the paradigm that I am talking about breaking down”
In the mouses stead Prentice sees things like facial recognition systems, multi-touch, and even devices like OCZ’s mind-reading Neural Interface Actuator.
