Project Aura

The most precious resource in a computer system is no longer its processor, memory, disk or network. Rather, it is a resource not subject to Moore's law: User Attention. Today's systems distract a user in many explicit and implicit ways, thereby reducing his effectiveness.

Project Aura will fundamentally rethink system design to address this problem. Aura's goal is to provide each user with an invisible halo of computing and information services that persists regardless of location.

There's an 85MB video showcasing how this might actually work; fun stuff!

I wonder how this would integrate with Red Tacton. Alternatively, they could very well become competing or parallel paradigms.


On a somewhat darker note,

Details are at my other blog. Profanity abounds.
