    That looks absolutely miserable to use.

    I think this is more an issue of showing off the possible, not the usable, Sam. The development of ultra lightweight display technologies makes movements forward and whether or not it's usable isn't really the point as to the fact that it's a research project to prove it's possible. Then you start working and building up those possibilities into an application.

    I don't know. Seems rather odd and counterintuitive to base the concept on bend gestures. Maybe that would make sense for some other applications, but for a (smart)phone?


    Seems to me it'd make more sense to improve upon voice recognition capabilities for the future instead. Either that or wait for that future when we'll actually be directly tethered to our devices (whether physically or otherwise)...

    Create a clear and specific thesis statement --State the issue at hand. Provide background information (or context)-- start with a history of the debate. Look for earlier discussions on google,Present opposing views--write about why people think it's a bad idea, Refute the opposing views--write about why people is a good idea,Provide a logical solution --weigh the pros and cons of driving with cell phones. Use a T-diagram if necessary, and--a simple as possible-- add up the good points to the bad points. If one has more than the other, state that and how you came to that conclusion.
