No More Mouse

July 20, 2008

The computer mouse, loved by everyone from dad to your cat, is now supposed to be abolished in 3 to 5 years, predicts an analyst. He thinks the 40 year old device will be replaced by built in mousepads, touch screens, facial recognition software, and above all…guitar hero controllers. It seems the mouse has been taken over by much cooler stuff, but looking back, it wasn’t so bad after all. I can’t really imagine scrolling around everything with my arrow keys, so I could say the mouse saved a lot of computer people their sanity. But I really can’t imagine controlling my computer with a guitar either…so maybe we need to find something better? Maybe mind control software! I hope, but I sure don’t want to hear soon that the keyboard isn’t going to survive either, or else we’re doomed.
