Two Visions of the Future: Nokia HumanForm, Microsoft Productivity

Two visions of the future: Nokia HumanForm, Microsoft Productivity.

Nokia HumanForm – a twistable, bendable phone with a sense of touch.

Would you bend your phone to zoom-in or zoom-out? A very unnatural gesture.

And, will you carry a device that cannot show high-resolution photos and videos? The non-rectangular display will make it difficult to do so.

Microsoft Productivity – more Internet services accessed via touch interfaces and more touch devices.

Nothing too exciting!

Compare these to the future with Kinect.
