(Newser) – In his keynote speech at the technology super-convention in Las Vegas, Steve Ballmer pointed the way to a future in which we won’t be chained to keyboards. The Microsoft chief took to the stage with a number of devices that instead use touch or sound for user interface, like Hewlett-Packard’s Slate tablet. In the same vein, Ballmer says, Microsoft is adding a voice- and movement-recognition controller to its Xbox 360 gaming system.
