Limitations of touchscreens

I like Edward Tufte’s take on Brett Victor’s recent essay, A Brief Rant on the Future of Interaction Design. Tufte’s comments are here: Touchscreens have no hand

A favorite line: “Dimensional compression is dimensional compression, however, and even those sentient beings that reside in string-theory N space probably whine that their N – 1 dimensional display device (necessary to fit in their N – 1 dimensional pockets) fails to capture the rich experience of their real N space.”
