How to replace a computer mouse? The future is now!
While corporations are creating the future, I will offer a fairly simple “innovative” solution that helps with computer work. All that is needed is to replace the mouse-type manipulator with the pen of a graphic tablet (like the Genius G-560 or Wacom Bamboo One). Please do not confuse graphic tablets with devices such as iPad. A pen tablet is only a device for inputting information into a computer.

The main task of this work is to teach the brain to think like a person. To do this, you need to come up with a methodology for checking “brain activity”, and according to programmers, chess is the best suited for this. Chess is a sport of the mind. Only the ability to think, think, analyze better (or, alternatively, in a different way) than your opponent does, will allow you to win. The first chess programs were very primitive. They evaluated which move would be the best in this situation, without having a common game strategy. This method of “thinking” usually ran counter to chess theory. On the one hand, a classical chess player familiar with the Continue reading
