g-speak Spatial Operating System

I learned about this on geekbrief today.

Oblong Industries is the developer of the g-speak spatial operating environment. From their website:
"The SOE's combination of gestural i/o, recombinant networking, and real-world pixels brings the first major step in computer interface since 1984; starting today, g-speak will fundamentally change the way people use machines at work, in the living room, in conference rooms, in vehicles. The g-speak platform is a complete application development and execution environment that redresses the dire constriction of human intent imposed by traditional GUIs. Its idiom of spatial immediacy and information responsive to real-world geometry enables a necessary new kind of work: data-intensive, embodied, real-time, predicated on universal human expertise."

To me, it just looks like Minority Report coming to real life and the hope that I will one day NOT have to use a mouse (sorry, my memory is too poor to remember all the keyboard shortcuts!). This is truly amazing...
