I’m not a computer gamer, though I’ve had fun writing programs that look like Spider and Scrabble. I use them as learning exercises. I’m currently converting a desktop game to a web based game that relies on lots of JavaScript. It’s Web 2.0. This fun stuff makes a better developer in a corporate environment.

But where are we headed in user interfaces? We see gestures have become very important in mobile devices, such as the Apple iPhone.  We can also see gesture based gaming systems, such as the Wii. Now, imagine Wii without a device in your hand or an iPhone without a device in your palm. Imagine no more. Check out this video link at BruceOnGames. Pretty amazing stuff.
