    Its matter of time when this won't be a joke anymore. How many people believed that voice could travel thousands of miles before telephones were invented?

    I knew it was for April fool. But it can be developed one day. Just like the wireless mouse yes why not it can be developed as well with technology advancement.

    Just because it's possible, that doesn't mean it's a good idea

    I think he means it seems like overkill.

    I'm torn on the notion of motion-controlled computing. It is kind of futuristic (and obviously, an April Fools joke here!), but the idea also seems superfluous.

    Exactly. I find it hard to believe there isn't a better way.

    The best way would be through reading your conscious mind, so you think in a certain way and it writes it to paper, you think "Open Firefox", and it'll open.
    Of course, it'll cause havoc in the office when someone starts daydreaming
