    This seems to operate ina similar fashion, looks liek a great way to interface with programs.

    It brings the film Minority Report a bit closer? And i could see potential for use in games, which could see it take off in a big way.
    However, it wouldnt be much use ina small office, only for presentations, or where you need large scale displays of information.

    I don't really see that as the way of the future, more of a way of the past purely because it's been done before, just not in the mainstream. To me, the future would lie in a person to machine interaction that's done in plain English with normal hand gestures without gloves.

    I was much more impressed with this than the videos above, even though it's so much more simple.
