Researchers at the MIT Media Lab's Fluid Interfaces Group are prototyping more natural ways for people to interact with computers and access and store information. Here are 10 inventions that enrich our personal and professional lives
When you need to take a quick note, you have a few options, none of which are ideal. You can write it on your hand (gross), punch it into your smartphone (cumbersome), or record it on a piece of paper (unreliable because paper always gets lost). Sajid Sadi and Doug Fritz have come up with what they think is a better way to take quick notes: the JotWatch. It looks like a wristwatch equipped with a stylus. Using the stylus, you can take quick notes on the "watch's" face. Buttons on the side of the JotWatch allow you to toggle between all of your notes.
