Why The Human Body Will Be The Next Computer Interface

FJORD CHARTS THE MAJOR INNOVATIONS OF THE PAST, AND PREDICTS A FUTURE OF TOTALLY INTUITIVE “MICRO GESTURES AND EXPRESSIONS” THAT WILL CONTROL OUR DEVICES.

To see the future, first we must understand the past. Humans have been interfacing with machines for thousands of years. We seem to be intrinsically built to desire this communion with the made world. This blending of the mechanical and biological has often been described as a “natural” evolutionary process by such great thinkers as Marshall McLuhan in the ’50s and more recently Kevin Kelly in his seminal bookWhat Technology Wants. So by looking at the long timeline of computer design we can see waves of change and future ripples. 

Check out the timeline here.
