The Psychology of Getting More Done (in Less Time) In today’s busy world, we’ve become a people obsessed with productivity and “work hacks.” Getting more done in less time allows us to get ahead, and even gives us more availability to do the things we love outside of work. The problem we run into is that it is easy to get motivated, but hard to stay disciplined.

At Help Scout we hold the belief that “achievement isn’t about doing everything, it’s about doing the right things.”
A Wearable Computer Turns Any Surface Into A Touchscreen Chris Harrison, a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, is full of interesting interface ideas. One of his latest projects is called OmniTouch, whose prototype design uses a shoulder-worn, depth-sensing camera/projector to create interactive "touchscreens" on anything from a nearby wall to your own forearm. The technology is amazing: OmniTouch’s screenless interface can distinguish between a touch and a "click" (i.e., a command to do something), auto-detect the size of the interface surface (e.g., it will project a short strip onto your arm, but a large rectangle onto the wall), and even recognize the orientation of the image in 3-D space (if you tilt your screen-hand toward yourself, it will consider it "private"; a more flat orientation will be deemed "public"). But oh, that rig--are normal people really going to be walking around someday with shoulder mounted screen-guns like the Predator?
