Mind-blowing hand-controlled computing room from Oblong Industries. This is worth the watch.

The guy behind it was the tech mind behind Minority Report. Yet another piece of that future arrives here.

This is cool stuff. John Underkoffler, chief scientist, Oblong Industries, was the tech advice behind the film "Minority Report" and then he built his own company to make that science fiction real. Here he shows me his latest work which is, indeed, mind blowing. This is part I, in Part II, you'll see a new conference room that Oblong has built using these technologies.

Amazing
Kyle McDonald and Arturo Castro play around with a face tracker and color interpolation to replace their own faces, in real-time, with celebrities such as that of Brad Pitt and Paris Hilton. Awesome. And creepy. See Castro's video of him doing the same thing, but with a different blending algorithm. His looks more like a maleable mask rather than a face substitution. Grab the code on GitHub.

Relatively new. It's been out for a couple years, but this latest release does some wonderful things. It's like a telepresence room where you can easily share multiple screens and content. I'll give you a demo when you come through LA.
