IMac, like an IPAD?

I just saw this. Looks like an IMac touch screen with dials for a compressor. If this comes true, maybe port our other touch programs to it? Looks promising maybe.

The key is the tilted display.
Current PC "iMac wannabees" that use touch are great - for about 5 mins.
Then your arms ache, so much so, that you have to use the mouse.

So for the touch interface to actually work properly, ( other than being the sales-gimmickit is currently,) the display will have to be more horizontal than vertical.

Not sure if I want my desk to disappear under a screen again....

Surely the best thing is for the screen to be on the floor, and the user suspended horizontally above it by some kind of winch system. No more tired arms! Easy.

If I were you I'd patent that idea as the iHoist as soon as possible.

Or perhaps the iDangle?
