The Future of the Menu: Say Hello to Ubuntu’s Upcoming Head-Up Display [Video]


----------------

This will speed up common operations by sooooo much… I can’t wait to give the HUD a try!

This is the HUD. It’s a way for you to express your intent and have the application respond appropriately. We think of it as “beyond interface”, it’s the “intenterface”. This concept of “intent-driven interface” has been a primary theme of our work in the Unity shell, with dash search as a first class experience pioneered in Unity. Now we are bringing the same vision to the application, in a way which is completely compatible with existing applications and menus.

  1. The gui doesn't have me nearly as excited as having a tool like that on the cli. If only you could use it in cl apps as well for finding obscure menu options :)

  2. I can see where it could be handy in some circumstances but….
    As a main interface? No!
    Leave the keyboard out of the equation and connect it to a microphone for voice commands.
    A.K.A. “Siri”
