I don't think these devices/interfaces are really any better than touch with respect to "do what I really mean". It's still hand eye coordination at the level of our limbs and motor senses.

I think real "do what I really mean" post-touch interfaces are the ones where our minds become the actuators, instead of our limbs. Things like translating neural signals to actions. We just got the first Telepathic Mice [1], you know?
