The New iPad Pointer Changes How I Perceive Basic Computer Inputs

Here are my thoughts on how Apple’s daring venture into one of the most sacred components of the old world could change how we view interface design.

Apple saying ‘no’ to an easy solution

An ambitious collaboration between PC controls and intuitive touch-screen

TLDR;

I’m feeling sceptical… Do explain.

1. Probability: It’s a dissection of how we interact with objects on the computer screen

2. Usability: it takes less effort to actually target something

3.Additionally: It’s also visually engaging

Downsides? Of course, there are

1. It might be really hard for everyone to ‘get right’

2. It’s yet to be proven effective on professional tools

Nevertheless, it’s still an attempt to open the door to new possibilities
