The Future Today

Personally, I’ve never really wanted to be Tom Cruise – with the exception of two moments.  The first was when he was rocketing around in an F-14 Tomcat in Top Gun.  The second was when he got to play with that really cool interface in Minority Report (and yes, I’m aware that this makes me a total geek):

I’ve known that if you get wealthy enough you can always buy a jet fighter (Larry Ellison and his son have mock dogfights over the Pacific), but how about that interface?

Today I found out that it might be coming a little sooner than the jet, thanks to Oblong Industries.  Check out this video of their G-Speak “spatial operating environment”.  Then you can compare it with the original Minority Report user interface.
