The Future of the Human Machine Interface

I got a follow from Twitter today from Jon Aydinova (@jonaturk).  I like to look at who follows me and read their profile or whatever they choose as their only link to share from their Twitter profile.  His led to a community called Disruptive Thoughts, Game Changers and New World Order.  If that name doesn’t compel you to continue, I don’t know what will.  At this point, I couldn’t possibly leave.

Reading through it I was pleased he pointed to this blog, but really loved the videos he posted from John Underkoffler. Most intriguing was the brief video clip by Oblong Industries that describes the revolutionary g-speak spatial operating system.  It’s described as a spatial operating environment that represents a completely new platform for computing, which seems to get all of its input from human gestures.  Optimized for metadata, it’s the perfect cloud computing application.
