After listening to the latest episode of This Week in Startups, I looked up the company Oblong. One of Oblong’s founders served as science advisor to Minority Report. Oblong looks at new and innovative ways of how we’ll be interacting with computers in the future.
Those paying attention would have seen Tom Cruise use gloves to control the semi-transparent interfaces in the movie. Sure Hollywood embellished the idea, but seen here on video, gloves are used to control UI elements, displayed across 3 large screens. Oblong are the developers of g-speak, a spatial operating environment.
