So our assignment was to watch two videos, and then write a blog using some questions as guidelines. So here are the questions:
- One of these videos deals with hardware and the other software, can you tell which is which?
- How would, or how have, these technologies changed the way that we interact with machines (computers)?
- Where do you see something like this being useful in business?
- How do you see something like either Photosynth or the Multi-touch device being useful in the church? How could you see either of these two creations helping to Spread the Gospel?
I think that the first video that I watched (Photosynth) was the software, because it was more of a program then an actually machine. I think that the second video about the Multitouch Input was the hardware because it was a machine that you could touch and feel, and you would run programs on the Multitouch.
I think they have changed the way we interact with computers, because now we except most new things coming out to be a touch screen, and we think of how much computers have changed over the years, and they just keep changing, and becoming better.
I think that it will be useful in buisness, because I could buisnesses like construction workers, and maybe people who study the earth and maybe even building the Photosynth would probably be very useful to them. I think the Multitouch Input would be most helpful to maybe teachers because kids could interact with it easily, and also people who work on architecture or something like that.
I think that it could be helpful, because I think eventually in churches there will probably interactible Bibles, and we won't have to keep Bibles in pews anymore.
