Adobe Mighty & Napoleon - The convergence of software and hardware

Adobe Mighty & Napoleon - The convergence of software and hardware
May 8th, 2013

Adobe explores how software and hardware on converging and how the user experience is shared across both.  Here they show off Adobe’s Mighty, a connected pen that works across devices, and Adobe Napoleon, a digital ruler and drawing compass. 

Notice how easy it is to move things not from simply one screen to another, but from one device to another.  My prediction is that we will see a world of connected devices that are self-aware of their proximity to other devices and the direction of their orientation relative to those other devices so you can simply move apps, images, movies, or any kind of information across the devices just like you can with a secondary screen. 

All that said, watch this movie, it will blow your mind. (via Christian Heilmann)
