    We’ve had a good few years now of mobile web development with growing uptake in mobile devices for accessing the web, with the debate between responsive and dedicated mobile design been one of the key area’s of debate.

    But with the release of windows 8, new desktop sized touchscreen technology making desktop touchscreens a more realistic price for the domestic market, the desktop enviroment is frankly starting to look more like the existing mobile enviroment for casual surfing (read: anything that doesn’t require excessive use of pointer or keyboard) but does this mean designs should move towards a mobile type enviroment interaction method, ie touch and gesture based as a default or carry on with the traditional pointer and keyboard interaction methods with stuff to adjust for mobile devices?

    Consider also things like google glass, possible interaction systems like microsofts kinetic, and smart tv’s where the enviroment might be devoid of both a pointer and tradiational touch/gesture systems.
