Mouse Getting Killed Off in 5 Years?

JerryCould this be bye-bye mousey?

Well, that’s what Gartner analyst Steve Prentice 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.
