Sub_title: Leap motion technology

The kinnect software was bought by MS
Will Apple buy this?
Will drivers for Linux be available?

I am not a Teutonic Knight

However I am interested in Puppy Tint
which is a cut down version of Project glass.
Of course it does not exist yet . . . Barry has just added touch screen support and the closest to glass for the average Puppy (for now) may be this raspberrian project

However changes are coming. Changes aplenty.

Some people want to work only from the console Rolling Eyes
They may be kin to the 'Knights who say Ni'

I want our smart dogs, users and Jedi to be aware of this new force of change.

It is really the interfacing choice.
Touch screens are a start. So much simpler and intuitive than a mouse.
Voice recognition is coming and becoming increasingly workable out of the box.
Then there are waving your hands about to control the cyberworld . . .
. . . And after glass . . .

The track record of Apple suing anyone that that uses software including interface software seems like the possibility of having such an interface for linux slim.
And even if the software interface was written from scratch, I would almost bet that Apple would claim that the interface infringed on theirs.
I am curious to see how the Apple/Samsung trial ends up.
In my humble opinion, it almost seems like the patent office people were getting kick backs from Apple to grant patents that either preexisted or were very vague.
The phone design as to shape seems to be one.
Also, I noticed that Cadillac is offering a touch screen device in their STS that looks like it uses the same functions that Apple issuing Samsung for supposedly using.
I wonder if General Motors is having to pay Apple for the use of those touch screen features.
