Technology term paper

"A growing number of critics have argued that, contrary to optimistic expectations that sound suspiciously like those that greeted the age of steam, the computerization of the American workplace in fact increases, rather than decreases, isolation, powerlessness, boredom, stress, occupational illness, unemployment, job skill deterioration, and social inequality. Such negative consequences are likely to be accompanied by increased centralization of corporate and governmental control, surveillance, and accidents-unintended, of course - that affect those who depend on the new technology .Technology always has unintended effects, and, as human beings are forced to adapt to ever more powerful and efficient machines, basic social and psychological needs are dismissed as superfluous in the name of progress."

"Trade routes and communication links were deliberately designed to maintain centers of power and to overcome international comparative disadvantages. For example, Britain still benefits substantially from its historically established communication links with its former colonies, long after the empire's formal demise. Universal telephone service has been adopted as a policy objective in many countries to encourage economic and social interaction within the country in order to help promote national unity. The EU fosters a new European identity by promoting increased communication and information exchange as a basis for stimulating greater trade between its member countries and for the creation of both a European market and a European culture."

"However, one part is still missing -- a simple and natural interface to 3D animations. Conventional input devices such as a mouse or joystick control only two parameters, and are counter-intuitive in 3D interaction. New devices such as sensing gloves or body suites are too cumbersome for the general use. A technology that promises a natural and unconstrained spatial interface is a direct gesture input, where gestures and control values are extracted from hand images acquired by video cameras. Such optical interfaces promise multiple degrees of freedom for control, high precision, speed, and ultimately very low cost."
