Display configuration changing the way we work

January 14, 2008

I hope Apple follow the pattern of the past few years and tomorrow reveal another sweet new product I will not be able to justify buying.

I’m really interested in all this multi-touch/touch-screen/Minority Report (almost) style technology which is always being talked about, used in a couple of places (like the iPhone) but still not really having a huge impact on the day to day workplace. I’m curious to see how products like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop (my 3 daily apps) are re-configured to work in a new environment, when eventually a touchscreen monitor is available that effectively negates the need for a mouse and keyboard. Would it encourage less rigidness and more fluidity or randomness if you are able to literally scatter electronic files on a screen in a manner similar to real-world objects?

I can imagine the work going faster in such an interface, but also imagine needing at least a 30inch monitor immediately! Anway, just thinking out loud. If Apple are the first to tout a product like this aimed at creative/graphic uses, then I need to pretty much resign myself to not being able to afford one anytime soon after!
