Your Body Does Not Want to Be an Interface | MIT Technology Review

Your Body Does Not Want to Be an Interface | MIT Technology Review:

“What could be more natural than staring at something to select it, nodding to approve something?… For privacy, you’ll be able to use imperceptible movements, or even hidden ones such as flicking your tongue across your teeth.”

These designers think that the difference between effortless tongue-flicking and Glass’s crude chin-snapping is simply one of refinement. I’m not so sure. To me they both seem equally alienating–I don’t think we want our bodies to be UIs. 

[Yeah, it’s a mess. This stuff never seems to work out.]
