Interface Design

Mike Elgan suggests that new user interface design will revolutionize computing. He posits that virtual reality technologies, where one uses verbal commands to interact with the computer, will replace the current desktop Windows,Icons, Menus and Pointer (WIMP) interface and the tablet Multi-touch, Physics and Gestures (MPG) interface the way that the purely command line QWERTY interface (example: DOS) lost prominence.

My take is that if firms adopt a verbal interface, employees will have to work from home or in offices, as a cube farm of talking knowledge workers would be a confusing babble.
