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.
