At the heart of the Apple Computer iPad is one rather important thing – the way human beings interact with technology. On the whole, Drawnalism thinks that anything which brings a closer connection between our senses and what we can do with them through technology is worth investigating. (Yes, we watched Minority Report too.) We thought the following video was worth watching as well, mainly as an example of how touch control is going to offer us a rather better interface to technology. Especially, if you make things with your hands.

If you are interested in a.nother article on the Apple machine, we think @psmith‘s round up piece for Journalism.co.uk is as good as we have seen.

Updated: Monday Feb 1st. Drawnalist opinions of the launched object are largely positive. We like larger displays for supply of information and design, but like all new creative devices the iPad is going to need time to develop and show its strengths. We also look forward to a version with a sharp, pointy stick facility for those of us who like them. Yes, we are looking at you Wacom.
