Wonder what it would be like if you could use the iPhone’s gesture-based interface on a really large screen? In one of the coolest video’s I’ve seen in a long time as a UI geek, inventor Jeff Han shows off a futuristic user interface much like the sci-fi screen Tom Cruise uses in Minority Report.
(you might see a commercial first)
Here is the accompanying Fast Company article.
My unnecessary commentary: We’re going to see all kinds of very cool apps using this technology in the next 5 – 10 years. (Artists? You thought the Wacom Cintiq was cool?)
I don’t understand the technology they’re using for the touch tracking and sensitivity, but this is quite a leap beyond a mouse-based GUI.

Awesome post Ben. I saw a bit of the Bumptop 3d interface techniques in there too. Exciting times for an interface designer….explorers in a new world! 🙂
I want one!
Jeff, yeah, the bumptop 3d interface looks sweet with this interface.
You can see the February 2006 public debut at TED Talks:

[…] Am gasit acest video pe BrainFuel si am ramas impresionat. Arata cum functioneaza tehnologia gesture-based pe un widescreen. Viitorul arata foarte bine, poate in 10-15 ani vor deveni ceva comun. […]
very cool, I’ll take one.
