Large-scale motion and gesture-controlled computing is no longer confined to science fiction movies, as Los Angeles-based Oblong Industries again demonstrates its exciting software that gives users a fresh new way to interact with computers. Dubbed “g-speak,” Oblong calls its software a spatial operating environment — and just as Tom Cruise and Collin Farrell did with the computer in Steven Spielberg’s “Minority Report,” users can control g-speak by wearing a special glove and performing gestures in the air. “We think the future of computing is multiuser, multiscreen, multidevice,” Oblong CEO Kwin Kramer told AFP. ”This system helps with big workflow problems.” Kramer says law enforcement and intelligence are among the key industries it targets with the software, but there are numerous other potential applications as well. A video of Oblong demonstrating an early version of its g-speak software follows below.
