When sci-fi becomes real

Everybody remembers those spectacular scenes when Tom Cruise was using an interactive computer interface in the great movie Minority Report. Just to reminisce:

Actually it was one of the film's science advisers who founded the Oblong Industrie company and they created the rudimentary but usable copy of the one seen in the movie called G-speak, the gesture-based interface with recombinant networking and real-world pixels.

I can clearly see that new interface technologies like the Microsoft Surface have big future, but while the MS operates in 2D, this new G-speak uses the absolute freedom of 3 dimensions. Amazing and unbelieveble. I'm looking forward to trying it one day.
