Microsoft Research Showing Transparent & Kinect-Like Desktop Computing Interface

This is a neat video, though probably not something that is too far from the minds of some people in respect to how they work. The way that the screen and keyboard are positioned are similar to how I position my iPad and keyboard – so I can see quite easily the benefits of such an approach. Adding the ability to track eyes and hands would make how I work better for sure – though I do wonder on the need for a physical keyboard (beside the fatigue factor). I wonder if the presence of the keyboard helps in regard to being able to spatially orient the display.
