Introducing The iMac Touch [Video]

Apple has a patent for a touchscreen iMac with an arm that swivels the display down to allow you to manipulate the display more like an iPad, without getting “gorilla arm.” It’s a cool patent, but what would that iMac look like in real life? Motion graphics and 3D animation student Joakim Ulseth put together an awesome video bringing an iMac Touch running OS X Mountain Lion to life. There’s a lot of problems with this sort of design, and Apple would never in a million years release it, but it sure does make a sexy video.

    Apple never release OS X for touch screens without changing UI – why? Size for comfortable use of buttons (or any item that you can tap) must be at least 16×16 px. Current OS X interface was created for the mouse, not fingers.

    Why all those who publish a video in which put Apple products and then get comment like “he should work at Apple”? In this case, you can see the ugly shape of the iMac back (too sharp, iMac has smooth forms), the lack of power supply wires (and powered on monitor), too much reflection and a bad composition, and as ugly iMac framing and tilt relative to the camera. With such attention this author without a doubt should work on Apple, SURE.

    Great video concept, but I wouldn’t touch one with a barge pole. Someone lifts a finger towards my iMac screen, I start the threats.
