Not you. Just the computer. Aww, don’t look sad. Okay, you can stay.
Oblong Industries wowed the crowd at TED 2010 with a gesture-based interface like the one in Minority Report. The company’s co-founder, John Underkoffler, was the science advisor on the film, in fact, and based the computer on the g-speak SOE (spatial operating interface) software that MIT has been working on nearly 20 years. Unfortunately, there’s no video of the live demo yet, but I’ve embedded a previous demo video below. G-speak is currently compatible with Mac and Linux, and can be set for a room-sized or a single-user setting. Oh, you know I’ve got to have this room-sized. I just need to find a room for it. The laundry room seems like a good choice; I’ll just yank the washer and dryer out. Who needs clothes? Where I’m going, we won’t need clothes. *flies away in a sweet DeLorean*
