TED: John Underkoffler – “Minority Report” technology – tai chi meets UI

Viewed 12 times

John Underkoffler is the guy who invented the computer interface in Minority Report that looked like a cross between cleaning the double glazing and tai chi. The point and touch interface is called g-speak and it’s about to change the way we interact with digital data.

Here’s Underkoffler’s TED lecture on the subject.

Gestures and movement will become integral to computer use in the near future – it’s already important in the gaming environment (which often leads the way thanks to the huge R&D budgets and profitability).

And the first environments to adopt g-speak could be the most complex ones like video editing.
