Or is it the other way around?

If you liked the movie Minority Report, or at least thought the technology scenes were cool, you’re going to love this.  A company has built an operating systems that leverages hand gestures to manipulate the information presented on the screen.  One of the founders of Oblong was a science advisor on the movie and based the designs of those scenes on his work at MIT.

I’m especially excited about this because my company has been working on a software application that takes data from disparate sources and allows multiple remote individuals to interact with that data in real time.  We have focused our efforts primarily on the data integration and collaboration aspects of the system.  Next steps are to apply an easy and intuitive user interface to the application.  This video has given me a lot of ideas on where we can take our application.
