I just noticed that Microsoft has a new ergonomic keyboard that will gently guide us into another 20 years behind desktop PCs, and was thinking that an adaptive perineal interface would not be a bad addition.

       Butt weight! There's more!

       Just out of curiosity, is there anything else to add to this? Purpose? Means of interfacing? Range of available commands? Some humour, perhaps? Anything?

       The interface is perineally installed and is operated by licking.

       Well, there's clearly one computer in the world already being operated by an arsehole.

       As long as they are going to make me comfortable sitting down in front of the desktop I was thinking they could make me REALLY comfortable, and gain my feedback and input in the process. It's the bottom chakra so there is lots of root stuff going on down there -- probably in alot of cases unconscious. Come to think of it maybe this should be developed as a FaceButt portal.

       Is there any general recognition that the top part of the human body is modeled on the bottom part? I can't seem to find anything simple and un-jokey about this online.

       It seems to me that the linked Magritte painting has it wrong in that the analogies are off. The most obvious analogies to me would be that the anus and the mouth are analogous, the urinary bits with the nose, the testes/ovaries with the eyes and the navel with the ears, although where does that leave the nipples? Maybe the nipples are like ears and the navel is some kind of central thing.
