Chopsticks or fork?

Ever noticed your mouse? It's just for one hand.

What if those who designed human-computer interface had, rather than using forks, been using chopsticks?

  • Could there have been a two-handed interface with your computer?

  • What would it be like to interact with your computer using both hands?

  • How would the internet and computers have evolved differently?

  • What changes would there be to Webdesign, HTML, or aggregators?

    If things might have been different . . . ask yourself ... would it be a better experience if we created those features, but made them workable with a single mouse?
