This is well over a year old, but still an interesting view in to the paradigm shift of human computer interaction, and the power of the touch screen interface.

The 10/GUI concept calls for a screen-sized touch pad on the desktop. Seems like a step sideways, but it could be the next generation of human computer interface.

This particular idea puts a different spin on things, showing how a touch pad (instead of keyboard and mouse), along with a more typical desktop monitor, could enhance the computer experience.

We’ve already seen pieces of this show up in the market. Apple’s “Magic Mouse” is a touch based evolution of the standard mouse. More recently, Microsoft introduced the “Arc Touch” mouse that works in a similar way (though much more sensibly, IMO).
