Now imagen this in the future being on most computer screens,
i think the games would *such as bve* you could maybe walk down to the yard and have to do hand movments in order to open the cab door and pull yourself in/up

just a thought lol

some of the new stuff is cool like the map ect.. and the resize with fingers seems pretty cool.

Nice idea but it appears to be a propriatery system, so I can't see BVE using it?

I'm sure an open system will be developed one day though!

Id love a touch screen keyboard, but keep the normal monitor, it would save space and would be ultra-modern!

Yeah. You're *really* going to type fast with an onscreen keyboard...

I reccon I could, I can type 80 - 100WPM on a normal clicky keyboard. Plus It would be soooo much more comfortable :)

Touchscreens are useless for anything more than a minimal ammount of data input. The screen doesn't move (like normal keys) so it's more hard wearing on your fingers.

80 - 100WPM ? WTF? Do you have like 30 fingers?

It bloody hurts as well!

NB if you *do* start feeling a dull tingling in your arm, stop typing / using the mouse now, if you carry on it will just get worse, and it is a pain to get rid of anyway.
