    How is touch passť when it isn't even the mainstream on ALL computing devices? The mouse is passť.

    But this technology is interesting, for 80 dollars and is more precise than the Kinect? I've thought from day one this was to be vaporware and too good to be true. I'll have to gestures the tires so to speak. I see this in part with touch, and in part with speech. Touch, gesture, and speech are what is needed for the Natural User Interface. There is no mouse in this scenario. Think Star Trek "Computer."

    Personally, this is how I will be able to control my PC from a distance, or so I hope. I've yet to read about how FAR one can use this accurately, and if this can be used to accurately control the Windows 8 UI. If so, then YES!

    So what if someone in an office was passing by and moved your mouse around?

    Mouse is (mainstream and still) possible on all computing devices with USB or PS2 connectors.

    I see all tablets have a USB connector. I wonder if I connect a mouse to it to see how it goes...

    In the Android VM's I use on my PC I get a nice blue-neon looking mouse pointer.
