The future of computing

We all have seen Tom Cruise in Minority Report and even though the movie was pretty average, the computing system used in it blew us away.

I have been talking about multitouch before here, here and here but most of them talk about concepts.

Now there is a company called Oblong that developed a system for real and it looks a lot like the one in the movie.

I want to volunteer to test this system, please.

Update: I just read that the cofounder of the company, John Underkoffer, was the lead of the team that came up with the interface used in the movie in 2002.

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your weblog. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thank you!
