I was curious if you had any feedback. I imagined this
same exact scenario a while ago. I would think that maybe we
could use the Service UI to "look" at any object that you can
imagine. Of cource it could be a web page but maybe you might
want to just make up a an object called MyLife. The object
Mylife could have mutiple objects within that object where
upon eventually certain attributes of the object would be web
pages. But what if a cool technology comes out that allows a
user to look through a cheap pair of virtual reality goggles
and see an intense immersive environment. By creating an
additonal object under MyLife to hold such a media file, you
can associate a different UI with that new Media Object.
Now when you click on or speak ("speech recognition") or even
just think (way into the future) the word "action" a new UI will
be loaded directly connecting you with information via any device
It could be a computer (webpage), a TV(entertainment),
a phone( voice and/or video phone), virtual reality goggle
interface, or any other device to come along.
