Yeah, that's great, but you need their new monitor technology for this.

LCARS is also Multi Touch in the fictional universe !

As an LCARS freak ofcourse I'm happy [I even created an LCARS video tutorial]
but I can't help but feel...why does it take so long...for us to reach here....

I know I know the usual "We're doing the best we can..."

They're keeping the good stuff for secret agencies and NASA. We're getting their table scraps. I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but it makes sense if you think about it.

Got a link to that LCARS tutorial, Bracer?

Here but I warn you, it's only for LCARS freaks like me,
most people would just say it's stupid...

I've been programming applications for my personal usage from
speech recognition softwares to exercise timing/set/rep monitors using the LCARS interface for 8 years,
so it would be nice to think I know a few ways to not screw up an LCARS interface by now. he he he

By then again, that might also mean I need to see a doctor, I have designer friends that curse and swear
the LCARS interface...its scary...
