I’m sure everyone has already seen the april fools google has unleashed onto the internet this morning – Gmail Motion. Google has a track record for their very believable april fools jokes year after year, but could GMail Motion actually be a thing of the future?
Current technologies include the Xbox Kinect, the Nintendo Wii and Playstation Move, that all use motion sensors to sense what the user is doing, and then acts accordingly to that input. So the real question is…
Why Can’t Computers Use That Form of Input?
