Here's the future /g/, in 10 years this is the rig you will be shit posting on.
why does it look like a shitty and inferior version of what we've already got? what's with this trend of making new shit that doesn't reach feature parity with our current setups? why? I want to move to mars and start a colony with people who aren't fucking retards
Holy fucking shit, my old CS lecturers are on this channel!
Both the main guy (Steve Bagley) and the old guy talking about Steve Jobs at the beginning (David Brailsford) taught me for different modules. Crazy shit.

If 2025 doesnt have an OS with scarlett johanssons voice im boycotting microsoft and comitting seidoku
I wouldnt mind the ability to add mods for control gui in the desktop* touchscreens.
Like a startrek looking interface to control a space flight sim. that would get my dick hard
Although I dont think I'd want 1 swingarm monitor and 3 built-in desk monitors with fuckhuge bezels.
Probably 2-3 monitors and 1 large desk touch input screen
See it's people like you who are the problem. We have experts in ergonomics that design incredible systems for interacting with computers but then there's idiotic consumers who watch scifi and think that's what the future should look like and discount it out of hand so instead we have gigantic touch screen running at 1366 by 738 becoming the norm.
Of course they're going to wave their hands around and touch gigantic buttons that are clearly legible on television, the audience couldn't follow along if they were using data hands with a well designed GUI made for productive work. It's a fantasy.
In my opinion I think stuff like this will catch on, but for there to really be any major ux changes I think it has to start with something major at the os or hardware level. Computerphile is badass though.
The Age of Waifus ended before it could begin.
>I will do all my work and play using a head mounted VR display.
I'm surprised no one has made any kind of desktop environment made for it that is no longer bound by 2 dimensions. Just get your keyboard and mouse on a swivel chair and have infinite workspace
Yeah I'm sure that reddit post is legally binding unlike when he said that he wasn't going to sell out Oculus Rift on the MTBS3D forums
He could be fired tomorrow and replaced by someone else, his word is essentially worthless.
>touch based interface
Microsoft Future did it better.
sweeping your arms about the desk compared to keeping your hands relatively still on a precise and intuitive navigation tool
it fucking sucks
unless you can lift those panels out and angle them towards you, have fun reading them with that glare.
I'll stick with monitors + KBM
Literally the only better option to control a computer than a mouse/keyboard, is mental control. As its instantaious and exactly what you want it to do with no confusion. It elimates misspelling a word for example, because once a mental link is established, it can account for your faillings in real time and correct it.
Also, VR would be better than a monitor. Rather than trying to focus in on just the rectangle and trying to ignore the bezel and the wall behind the computer, you'd just have nothing but your work/applications to look at....
Touch and speech is a dead-end!!!
Then why pay for an 8k monitor and the GPU power needed to run it? Even 4K at the size of a desktop monitor is tiny as fuck.
My guess was a bit off then. 90-100ppi is comfortable from desktop viewing distances, but up to 110 is fine too. Higher than that is not.
>mfw chiropractors will be in high demand if this thing fully replaced the mouse and keyboard
Great man, I can finally free myself of the cayge of, uhh, uh, the scryean maus and kee-bord.
This buckling spring keyboard really is horrible to write code on yeah man I hate it every day and this beautiful 4k monitor just sucks, I'm going to go throw it out the window right now.
This is the real future of desktop OS. Every TV will come with an inbuilt PC card. All problems solved.
arguably the period inbetween the early 2000's and the invention of smartphones were the most free we've ever been tech-wise
There are enough people motivated by freedom that i'd reasonably expect that barring another platform shift we will have completely free, baseband-included, phones generally available for those interested in a few years and we will be back where we started
15 years or not, when an idea is a good idea, one must acknowledge it.
There is also another thing, why would you use a gazillion screens, graphics cards, and computers, while you could be projecting 4K video on a wall and capturing movements with embedded sensors in said wall at the same time to move stuff around?
I don't see anything which is physically big, so it takes a lot of space, becoming the norm in computing anytime soon.
And it will also not be cheap. Takes a lot of space + expensive = not the norm, ever.
Thats literally the worst attempt at making a video about a guy that thinks that he's thinking outside of the box.
I thought it was going to be a ripoff of project looking glass a decade later, but it's just some old guy being a show off with more monitors.
I hate you OP
No. It's not ergonomic. In even the least. Try craning your head down for hours on end and see how much your neck hurts. You dumb little fuck.
looking down all day is bad erogonomics and people know it, that's why people use stands with their tablets or cases that prop them up, also why laptops are angled the way they are (also some other factors like shitty screens have shitty view angles)
and the problem with touch/motion controls on a vertical surface is your hands tire fast if it is a desktop sized screen.
Mental control would be shit unless we filtered out 90% of what we sent the computer's way.
People aren't always 100% focussed on things. There are usually other thoughts knocking about in our heads that would easily fuck up whatever we were casually directing towards the computer.
when will people realize that the keyboard/mouse combo is the pinnacle of computer input technology.
why the fuck do people think that touching the fucking screen is somehow going to give you better control than a mouse pointer. first of all you can't even see what's under your finger when touching the screen.
It's also why any traditional animators tend to use equipment that is slanted.
For example, I used to date someone who specialized in traditional 2d animation; she used a simple light box, but it was slanted, and all the other people she knew who animated worked in very much the same way.
It's why animator desks are also slanted.
Frankly, if Intel and AMD don't get their shit together and actually push performance on desktop CPUs, the rig I'll be shitposting on in ten years will be the same one I'm shitposting on today.
Well, the Gigabyte Brix are a solid option for small form factor, but for the price (they're damn expensive and still don't include storage or memory) you could build a basic mATX rig with more options, easier to replace parts, and much better cooling.
When a desktop i7 (equivalent) can run at full load without overheating and throttling in a small form-factor, along with a fantastic integrated graphics model, that will change things quite a bit.
>new paradigm of working
>having all your windows and shit spread out on your desk like a bunch of fucking papers
We went to computers to get rid of all these fucking papers stacked on top of each other.
>oh shit, where the fuck did I put that word window?
It's a myth. There is no fact about computer power doubling every 18 months. The closest thing is an obsevation that states transistor density had historically doubled every 18 months.
Why bother improving performance anyway?
What's the user gonna do, move over to PowerPC? HA!
The death of multiple-architectures (Symbolized by PowerPC mac) competing on the desktop was the death of this industry.
Coincidentally apple dropped PowerPC just one year before the iPhone decided to finish the industry off by giving normalfags easy-to-use smartphones, leading into the iPad and the death of the netbook.
Oh yeah, but now there's cheap android netbooks providing a viable alternative for normalfags who want to cheap out on a net-viewing device.
I miss when they were forced to buy Windows XP netbooks. (Linux would have been more ideal, but still.)
I'm too lazy to even try and tidy up this phrasing to make me sound less anti-consumer. I just don't like tablets, and I do like netbooks. I accept my preference has lost, but nothing stops me wishing otherwise.
Did you know Dilbert strips help bluepill staff into complaining about shit work environments less?
>"Xerox management had recognized what more gullible Dilbert readers did not: Dilbert is an offbeat sugary substance that helps the corporate medicine go down. The Dilbert phenomenon accepts—and perversely eggs on—many negative aspects of corporate existence as unchangeable facets of human nature...As Xerox managers grasped, Dilbert speaks to some very real work experiences while simultaneously eroding inclinations to fight for better working conditions."
You can placebo your way out of anything.
>in 10 years.
Nigger the first one I could setup right now in 20 minutes with 3 easily obtainable touch monitors and a table saw.
The second one looks like the TV wall setup bestbuys used to have until they realized it was stupid technology and everyone hated the black lines(shit must of been 10 years ago)
I also dont understand the "problems" he is running into. Couldnt he just connect 4 tvs or so into one 4k display, then just hook up the four clusters to the computer as 4, 4k displays via Display port or some shit. The fuck is he going on about ethernet? I dont understand..
also keeps talking about "like working with paper" AS if the whole reason we dont do that know isnt because current computers are better.
it's equivalant to saying, we got rid of the backspace key and threw you a tube of white out, to make it more like working with a type writer.
I mean the bezels (smaller on sides, larger on top and bottom), rounded corners, color scheme (front panel is black and the back is light-colored). It looks like a hueg iPad. Not just any tablet, but like iPad.
>the future of desktop computing is a huge smartphone screen embedded into your desk
>50 years in the future
>white and asian people still trying to get clean drinking water for africans
you would think somebody would teach those fuckers how to dig a well for themselves...in the glorious future.
>still cant rest on touch screen
until you make a touch screen that can differentiate between input touch and rest touch this is useless
you need to be able to just put your hands on it because its a fuggen desk
He was staunchly against the very thing that he did, which was sell out.
The man has no convictions and no honor. Everything he says should be taken with a grain of salt. The servers for Occulus more than likely will be hosted at Facebook headquarters. There is no independence. He's trash.
But he would have sold anyway. They needed the money.
they should have sold to a hardware company, because that is what THEY ARE.
Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, hell, even Microsoft and Apple would have been better choices, but they sold to a social network, which just goes to show that they dont care about the future of media.
