NEW UI CHALLENGES - AUGUST 04, 2003

 

Remember those hi-fi, snazzy user interfaces from Minority Report? The ones where the machine operators tap on holographic controls that materialize in thin air? Well, looks like we are once again, going to witness the transformation of science fiction into scientific reality. And that too in the very near future! This article in the NY Times, reports about a holographic keypad already developed by Holo Touch, a startup involved in creating holographic user interfaces. (via Slashdot).

 

So what have my Usability-enthusiast friends have to say about this? Will we really have to swing our arms, right to left, in thin air, to do a backspace or close window, like John Anderton did in Minority Report?
