No no, haha, I wasn't referring to handwritten digital characters. I meant something like a 3D on screen keyboard that you can use as digital hardware. Now that would be awesome. Definitely take a while to get used to, but still.

I am interested in the potential for 3D modelling, though.
True true, it would take time to adapt to this control mechanism, but I still think future Operating Systems can be changed to fit this kind of tech. Personally I think it's too early to incorporate said tech so deeply into computers right now, but I can still see this little gadget built into future laptop models right next to the mouse pad, especially for gaming. It could even be built into console controllers for specific games programmed specifically to fit motion control. I don't know, just seems like a great concept!
