Next generation computers will be highly interactive devices controlled by gestures
In 2008, I attended a meeting in Madrid, Spain that featured the coolest demonstration I had ever seen. The problem was that I wasn't allowed to talk about what I had seen because the company was still in stealth-mode. More importantly, several governments, including the U.S. government were still exploring various parts of the technology for next-generation computing systems, so parts of this were very confidential. By the end of that year, Oblong Industries had revealed itself, but still little was said about its project. Finally, people are starting to talk about it. While we may not have been at this year's TED conference, apparently, Oblong was. And apparently, it wowed the crowd. And it should have. If you've seen the movie Minority Report, you've seen the system they're building.
In the future intuitive, flexible and highly interactive devices will replace the clunky desktop computers and fixed-sized screens that rule our lives today.
