Intuitive 'Interface free' touch driven screen !

Science Fiction movies in Hollywood are pretty close to reality in labs. I remember watching The Minority Report. Wall-sized displays, gesture recognition, and seamless information convergence. Tom Cruise calls up and manipulate video footage and other data in mid-air after donning a special pair of gloves.  Its an intuitive touch-free interface.  

Watch a similar intuitive interface, whick works on multiple touch sensors and eliminates the traditinal interface from the picutre. Wow!

Jeff Han is a research scientist for New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. Here, he demonstrates—for the first time publicly—his intuitive, "interface-free," touch-driven computer screen, which can be manipulated intuitively with the fingertips, and responds to varying levels of pressure.

Wonderful discussion on The Minority Report Interface here.

The Minority Report Interface  by LukeW

It turns out that Microsoft Research, MIT, and several design shops had a say in the interface designs found in the film.
