Here we see some prophetic content from the 2002 film Minority Report. It shows:
- Video conferencing (before Skype and similar become popular) - Gesture-based User Interfaces - Predictive crime fighting (pre-crime)
The movie involves the 'Pre-Crime' police unit that addresses crimes before they are committed. The police use a gesture-based interface designed for the film by MIT's team led by John Underkoffler (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6YTQ...).
The gesture-based UIs are obviously similar to Xbox Kinect and are now being released for content consumption by companies like Leap Motion and Thalmic Labs (Myo Armband).
I find it very amusing that with all this sci-fi technology they still need to walk across the room with a huge disk to copy a few files between 2 PCs.
This video is used under fair use conditions: research, teaching, and scholarship. ------ Minority Report is a 2002 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg and loosely based on the short story "The Minority Report" by Philip K. Dick. www.imdb.com/title/tt0181689/
