Designing for digital natives: The world at your fingertip - Touch screen or tangible interaction? Choose one preferable future and argue for one scenario over the other. A personal topic of choice may also be accepted.

Summarizing.
Summarize a subfield within you area. From brief history to current state today, and possible futures. Include pictures.
