The limits of gestural interfaces

or this?

That Microsoft productivity video gets a pasting again. This time from Bret Victor who comments 'Yes - you've got arms! And shoulders, and a torso, and legs, and feet! And they all  move!....with an entire body at your command, do you seriously think the Future of Interaction should be a single finger?'.

Takes me back to Don Norman's comments on the arbitrary nature of current gestural interfaces.
