Facebook wants to replace the mouse with mind control and tiny wrist flicks Facebook Reality Labs

Imagine you’re at your desk typing on a keyboard that’s made exactly for you, the length of your fingers, the span of your palm, feeling the click of keys… that aren’t even there. Imagine whizzing through a menu on a screen with no wires or stand, floating in front of you, with your mouse in the bin and options presented to your before you’ve even requested them. This is the reality Facebook showed us it’s working towards in its futuristic labs.

When it comes to forward-thinking computing platforms, Facebook wants to be in the driving seat in much the same way it (still) owns the social networking space. Its continued investment in Oculus VR speaks to this ambition, as does its recent unveiling of Facebook Aria – its in-development augmented reality wearable glasses.
