Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dual cursors This is a short story, and hopefully one or more readers will see it as a challenge; It's been buzzing through my head for a couple of years now, and occasionally similar stories pop up on internet-fora, but to no avail so far: First step: My laptop has one cursor on the screen, like all other computers that I have seen. I can control it with the touch-pad, or with a USB-mouse, or a trackball, or a graphic tablet. I can click, double-click, and right-click. All with my right hand, 'cause I am right-handed. With my left hand I can do short-cuts on the keyboard, if I know them for the app I am in. My Macbook-trackpad even recognises two fingers, for scrolling and zooming. And if plug-in an external mouse, both inputters simultaniously control that one cursor on the screen. Sounds familiar, no? Cool, not! Ok, next step: My father was a pianist. Had ten fingers and two feet. Used all of them simultaniously to generate input. And he never got confused. And sounded great, at times. OR: I used to ride my bike, a BMW R75. Left foot gears up-and-down, right-foot rear brake, left hand clutch, and lights and turn-signals, right hand throttle and front brakes. And when I had the side-car on I even had to think about balancing it all as well. One and one is two, or may it be a little more? WHY-OH-WHY can't I have more than one cursed cursor on my screen? Each listening to a seperate mouse/touchpad/tablet/whatever I choose? My screen can surely handle it, and so can my Macbook. And surely my body can handle two mice, one in each hand, and foot-pedals for the right-click, and what-have you-not! And surely my brain can handle that, just as it handled the brake/clutch/throttle/lights/turn signals on my motorcycle-handlebars! And ten minutes later I could drive a gear-shifted car, with all the tools in a different place, just fine. Why-oh-why is the only machine that really thinks much faster than me, only accessible through ONE SERIAL INPUT MECHANISM? God gave me multiple digits, Steve Jobs gave me a fine machine, who now creates the final interface? A small piece of code, which lets the user choose how many mice, how many cursors, which cursor is which mouse, what their colors are, how they each behave in speed and so, and if there is a hierarchy, and how that hierarchy works. I hear it is possible in Linux, but cannot find any confirmation. But I want it on my macbook. So now what? Does this story get listed under 'just stories', or does someone out there see the realism in it, and pick up the challenge? And please, dont ask: What for? Steve J was asked that way backin '76 or so. Gentlemen developers, sharpen your toolkit, close your helmets, and off it is! I expect a working version in three days! And eternal fame for the programmer, and maybe money? Greetings from Froit from UlanBataar, Mongolia"
