    I can't help but think that with no apparent interest after 9 hours this may be a solution in search of a problem.

    So you have to scratch the living day lights out of your computer screen

    Also it is very impressive what they've done, however I can't see how this may be useful. Especially since outside of "gaming" we have seamless syncing with applications. The likes of DropBox, OneDrive and other syncing word processing apps (i.e. office and onenote).

    WebOS tried something similar years back with the Touchpad and Pre devices (albeit less interactive than this).
