Here’s a detailed look at the technology that lies at the heart of our scenarios. We’ve focused on Tablet PC’s, large screen displays, immersive simulation technology, collaboration devices, advanced gestural interfaces, and touch sensitive screens with styli. Taken together, we think these technologies constitute a potential revolution in architectural design.

We think that advanced tablet computers will be commonplace by the year 2000. Here’s an in-depth look at the features they’ll likely contain and why we think they’ll fundamentally change the way people interact with computers. (Learn more)

By the year 2000, we expect advanced CAD workstations to resemble very large, flat screen monitors rather than a collection of desktop boxes that are lashed together. See why having easy access to a large digital tack board will change the way designers work. (Learn more)

Pencil is a pressure sensitive stylus that’s designed to work with the advanced tablets that we expect to be widely available by the year 2000. (Learn more)

Immersive Technologies & Gestural Interfaces
Find out how gestural interfaces and immersive displays will radically alter how designers interact with computers and help popularize the use of simulations in the design process. (Learn more)
