Minority Report Computer

Think of it as the Power Glove with big-screen TVs. One of the science advisors on Minority Report, John Underkoffler, founded a company called Oblong Industries to make Tom Cruise’s fancy computers a reality. The result is G-speak, a spatial operating system using huge monitors and clunky mittens.

Sure, spatial computing looks impractical now, but so did multitouch early last year. Now it’s on iPhones.
