g-speak spatial operating environment

Our fascination with multitouch is fairly well known, but it expands even further to cover all sorts of man machine interaction. Embedded above is a tech demo of g-speak, a spatial operating environment. The user combines gestures and spatial location to interact with on screen objects. If it seems familiar, it’s because one of the company’s founders advised on Minority Report. We doubt all this hand waving is going to catch on very quickly though. Our bet is on someone developing a multitouch Cintiq style device for people to use as a secondary monitor. It would bridge the gap between between our standard 2D interactions and gestures without making a full leap to 3D metaphors.

  1. But if you remember from Johnny’s vid – it’s really awkward to wave your hands around in the air for any period of time. We’re designed to work well with haptic feedback – that’s why people get weirded out by the iphone screen – we’re just not wired that way.

    So unless we (d)evolve, this kinda tech really won’t take off.

    I’m curious if it’s dark in the movie for dramatic effect or because it’s necessary for operation…
