it does pass the "cool" factor test

by jdclyde In reply to boys - i need gift advice

it would be a cool toy, and a heck of a conversation piece, but tab your fingers on your desk as if it were a keyboard and imagine if you could get used to not getting the touch feedback from a keyboard.

still early and slightly hungover, so will have to look around and get back to you on this one.

so you really want to hurt his fingers

Try drumming your fingers on a hard surface for 10 min. and see how you like it. I won't, unless I am using it with a PDA for, may be, 5 minutes.

But, there may be a way around that problem.

by deepsand In reply to ya..

The illusion of a holographic device definitely speaks of SF; hence the "wow" factor.

If it does'nt have a problem resolving the touch points in 3 dimensions within a relatively restricted range, projecting onto a cushioned surface of the proper elasticity might just do the trick; just enough to bounce the fingers a bit so as to return enough kinetic energy to the fingers to aid in their retreat from the surface, thereby reducing fatigue.
