A co-worker, Jamie, loves watching presentations for TED.com. TED.com bills itself as the site with “Ideas worth Sharing,” may of which were presented at the TED conference. And I’ve seen some wonderful presentations. And he’s shared may of those wonderful ones with me.
This week, he sent me a link to a presentation from a MIT lab led by Pattie Maes. This presentation shows off a computer with an interface much like that seen in the movie Minority Report. This is pretty exciting technology. I’d venture to say, this may be as game changing as the iPhone has been to cell phones and the current generation of portable computers. This is pretty cool and although, I’m not sure about the “Sixth Sense” billing that she gives to it, I think the practical application of this is very cool.
