The impact of touch screen interaction

A little while ago Bill Wessel, of Foviance, blogged on how the iPhone and its successors had changed mobile interaction in a way that couldn't have been envisioned, as recently as 2006. The shift in expectation was brought home to me over the holiday as I tried using a basic Kindle, and found myself constantly wanting to interact directly with the display, and frustrated by the tedious process of navigating a keyboard using a cursor key and select option.

This video shows clever work by Jack Zylkin that turns the whole sequence of progress on its head, with an iPod driven by a typewriter.
