We already have the technology but it just isn't as functional, or intelligent enough that it can currently replace the KVM solutions that we use today.

The reason that keyboards and mice are still in use is because they are simple to use ( with only a very small learning curve).

I wouldn't like to suggest that we will never use any other method but for the moment nothing is better that what we currently have.

Swiping a tactile screen has become the defacto interface on SmartPhones because it works for that particular format. Swiping a large tactile PC is a pain, a mouse is a far better medium - for the moment.

Evolution/advances in technology will always provide us with alternatives but until those alternatives have some distinct improvement over the existant then I doubt that anything will change.
