The Future Is Here

Tom Cruise in Minority Report
There's that very cool sequence in "Minority Report" where Tom Cruise's character adroitly accesses a multi-sensor computer interface to track down a crime that's about to be committed. Well, we really don't have the ability to predict crimes quite yet but part of the technology in "Minority Report" is here now.

Steve Bryant reports that a Perceptive Pixel has developed a cool touch-screen interface. The level of usability and intuitive response is pretty damn impressive. Check out the video at Bryant's blog Reel Pop.

Apple iPhoneSo, what does that do for us today? Check out Steve Jobs' demo of the new iPhone.

If you're interested in the tech aspect of this stuff here is a rundown on Laser Gesture Capture, and FTIR (Frustrated Total Internal Reflection) touch-screen. And, I thought my trackball mouse was cool. :-|
