The Future of the Mac Is Very Strange, According
In this article, we present to you the pick of the bunch, the high-concept Mac dreams that may or may never make the cut.
Yet given the poor reception to the low-travel butterfly keyboard, this is probably an idea that’s best left unfulfilled.
Who needs keyboards when you can just control your Mac by flailing your arms about the place? That’s the thought process behind a few Apple patents, all of which would let you perform various tasks through similar gestures to those currently employed on Apple’s trackpads 8212; except in the air.
If it ever comes to fruition, the flapping gesture system will be a sure-fire way to convince your neighbors you’ve finally gone mad.
It 8217;s an awfully specific use case, but this is a technology we could easily see Apple develop and sell to a different company.
Your Mac already has lots of great input methods, but haven’t you always just wanted more? Sure, a trackpad is fine, I guess, but we all know how they work these days. What if you could control your computer through an all-new input method, one that is bafflingly abstruse and of questionable sanity? Well don’t worry everyone, I have good news. There’s an Apple patent for that.标签：
