    Default Minority report technology

    This just looks damn cool, imagine the fun you could have with this in FPS.

    Wonder what business would make maximum use of this?
    Air Traffic Control?
    The Military?
    Game Designs?
    Cyber Crime/Criminal agencies?
    Intelligence Agencies?

    man your arms would be sore after a shift on that

    What I was thinking too... Still though, they could probably make some pretty cool FPS:es with that technology.

    That's just fucking cool, to hell with FPS. can you imagine what you could do with RTS?! Supreme Commander would be ridiculous on that!

    According to fanbois in order for there to be no problems with an MMORPG you have to imagine it isn't there, well, they say ignorance is bliss.

    Me and a friend were talking about the intelligence agency applications of it.

    Keyhole Sat with Real Time Access. Zoom into trouble zone, 'TAG' the asset, scan zoom and pan the area find the best way to take asset without being compromised

    Bet they could have used this in Mogadishu if the 'Black Hawk Down' scene of trying to get the convoy out was anything to go by

    Also this linked into CCTV Cameras in an area, after bit of practise reading , switching and manipultaing the cameras would be second nature,

    HEHE, RTS on that would fucking rock lol

    its really badass and all but i think the new touchtops are more commercially viable. For armed forces and large corporations this might be useful though.

    Anyway kool stuff.

    Touch tops have limitations though, you can only do one thing (resize screen, or zoom in and out) with the Gspeak you can use hand signals to manipulate actions, (as you see in the video pushing files in and outetc)
    Gspeak seems more adaptable, Imagine two people working it side by sid,e lot easier to do using that glove and screen setup than touchpads

    you could user you right hand to raw and you left hand to rotate up and down/side to side etc) like how the guy drew the spiral, imgaine doing that on a touch top?

    A friend said this to me,
    Wow hard to believe that as little as 25 yrs ago this stuff wasnt even dreamed of isnt it. If I live to be 100 (34 now) I wonder even what technoology will be like by then.

    I still recall playing the Vectrex? ZX82, Amiga, BBC, How long before we get Holodecks ^^

    Darkfall...on a Holodeck....howw fucking awesome

    im not arguing that the gspeak isnt capable. In fact its for MORE powerful that a touchtop, but its not as commercially viable. people dont have rooms dedicated to mocap hand sensors or 30ft screens. Military applications would do well though.

    However its still not even viable for them as there is really no application you can do on there that you couldnt do on a desktop. For instance people were mentioning finding escape routes and such, but what stops a PC from doing that? Its the same data feed from the same satellite and if we dont have 3 button mice in the army, GG.

    Waste of time, in my humble opinion. Why would they make a system that responds to major body movement (arms, hands), while you already have systems that respond to minor body movements (fingers). Next step in accelerating it would be a mind-machine interface or better eye movement tracking technology, not major body part tracking.

    What I mean is, what they're doing in the video is mighty cool and all that, but they're standing there waving their hands all day. For one, its tiring. Two, the range of motion isn't as precise as small body (try typing with your elbows, it's a lot harder to hit the right keys). Three, there's still a major delay where your brain decides you have to zoom in, and your arm does that motion, more and larger muscles are involved. While a mind-machine connection would be as direct as a neural pathway with machine reacting in a millisecond, much faster than your arm or even fingers would.

    So, overall, not particularly impressive.
