On ajaxian a few weeks ago there was a video posted from Adaptive Path about their new concept browser series. It’s an interesting concept browser, where the browser can be used for collaboration, data can be seamlessly manipulated, desktop and mobile spaces are unified, information is based visually by time and relevancy (can you say firefox bookmarks), physical interactionÃ‚Â and data ownership.
There are four videos in the series and they are all pretty short, about fifteen minutes total.
- Collaberation and Seemless data manipluation – part 1
- Mobile and Location Awareness – part 2
- Physical data and physical reconigtion – part 3
- Data access, use and ownership – part 4
All of the videos show the interesting system for laying out the files that the characters interact with. I think that part is probably the most futuristic but also the most unusable. One of the things I will never get used to: touching my screen to do things. I am also scared by part 4, because being under eighteen myself, I don’t anyone but me to own my data.
(A joke I thought of, when my parents were kids, they didn’t have mice. When I was a kid, I had mice. When I have kids, they won’t have mice.)
