My gut feeling is that there will be no big revolution until we get
mind control. :)
One bit from the book that I see more and more applied is a
more evolutionary progress called zoomable GUIs (or ZUIs or 2.5d
interfaces). There is a group around Ben Bederson
that produces cool libs (Jazz) and some nice apps that use this
approach. Nice for mice with a scrolling wheel BTW.
We created a great ZUI at my last company using Jazz.
Another such ZUI lib is VTM
but I have not programmed it yet.
