Infographic of Human Computer Interface Evolution

This nice infographic shows the entire history of computer interface evolution over a half century, from the early punched-card days of the 1950s, through the typed command lines of the 1960s, to the well known operating systems of the present.

In the last 30 years the most important device in human-computer interaction was undoubtedly the mouse, but recently touch screen and technologies that allow users to control their computers with body gestures (like Wii or Kinect) have become incredibly popular too. The reason why we publish this infograph is located at the bottom of the image, where thought control technology and brain-computer interfaces are predicted as the ultimate computer interface of the future.
