What is the deal with touch screens?
What is the deal with touch screens?
In today’s day and age, everyone wants things instantly and in limitless amounts. We live in an instant society and nobody likes waiting which is why we have things like vehicles that are key-less or touch screen phones, and computers. For example, have you ever seen a key-less, start in a vehicle? I have, and if they have that out now, what are they going to come out with next, first the cars parked themselves and now there is keyless, entry and start the next thing will be them driving themselves. Everything is becoming either touch screen or you need to use a remote type of device in order to use specific things.
Why were touch screens invented, what is the deal with them? that is the question, isn’t using keys or buttons easier? I guess it depends on who you ask. The reason touch screens were invented is because, it is one of the easiest to use, and most intuitive of all computer interfaces, a touch screen allows users, to touch icons or links on the screen in order to activate them. When you touch a touch screen it sends a specific voltage to the app that you are trying to access so that it will open. There is more to it, but this is terms that we can understand.
So what is the deal with touch screens? Do you use them or do you not want anything to do with them? That is the question. Touch screens were invented on devices so that they would be easier to use and it would be faster for the user to use them. Rather than using keys and that is why touchscreens are all the rage now. Everyone wants things to be fast, and if they aren’t then people get mad. We live in a fast-paced society and it just keeps moving faster and faster that is why most things now are a touch screen.
Touchscreens are all the rage now because they are the easiest to use. Everything is becoming touch screen activated in today’s day and age because everything is now so advanced. What are they going to come up How with next? How many touch screen items do you have in your household? How many have you had, or do you not have any? I have one thing that is touch screen and that is my iPhone. Which I never thought that I would be able to use, the reason for this is because I have eye-hand coordination issues. But having the iPhone improves them a lot which is a plus.
Touch screens improve your eye-hand coordination ability. At least that is what I think, what do you think of touch screens do you like them or do you despise them? I think that touch screens are the new normal now and it won’t go back to the way it was before. The more technical the world gets the bigger devices get, and the more hands-on and hands-free everything gets. What I mean when I say the more hands on is just by the touch of a finger you can access anything you want now. You don’t have to type things in, you just need to touch the thing or swipe in order to get it to work. Do you find that cool or do you, think that is annoying?
Why were touch screens invented
Were touch screens invented because people are getting lazy and don’t want to be bothered with typing things in? that is a question that will have many different answers, I don’t think people are becoming lazy but the world is moving so quickly that it is faster to have touch screens rather than not, for easier access to the always on the go world that we live in now. Or were touch screens invented for the ease of using things? These are the questions that go through everyone's heads what do you think, though? Do you like touch screens do you know why they were invented.
I think I have an idea as to why they were invented and the reason is that everyone wants things so fast in today's day and age that having things at your fingertips in the form of touch screens instead of having to touch buttons is easier. Which is what people want don't they? Something easy, and more computerized so that they don't have to think much. There are limitless things that touch screens can do, that you don't have to do on your own.
An example of what a touch screen phone can do is you can set it up to voice text, so you don't even have to use your hands in order to send a text message to someone or even look something up online. I think that almost all touch screen phones have the feature where you can speak into it and they will find whatever it is you are looking for or text whoever you want to text so that you don't have to do it. The deal with touch screens is to make it limitlessly simple for everyone so they don't really have to think about it. In a sense, their phone is thinking for them when they say one word because that is how much memory and knowledge phones have now.
Touch screens are there to make life easier for everyone. An example of this at the touch of a button your apps will open so that you can use them. Instead of having to type in the address of what you want to open it is right there in front of you on your screen ready to use if you just touch it once. Touch screens are meant to make our lives limitlessly simpler. But what exactly are they doing?
Are they making our lives aimlessly simpler because all we need to do is touch a button to get what we want, or are they making us limitlessly dependent on using our hands instead of our heads for the most part, since everything at our fingertips and we don't have to think about it?
Using touch screens is limitlessly simple once you get the hang of it but what is the actual deal with them was that the intention when they were invented, to make our live easier that is?
Why Touch Screens?
Touch screens are everywhere in today's day and age. It is not just phones that have touch screens now, there are Ipods, Ipads, touch screen computers. The list is limitless, the big question is why do they exist now more than before? Is it because they are more convenient to make, and that is what the consumer wants?
