This was featured on BBC News a couple of weeks ago, it's an incredible 3D computer that you can 'reach inside', to allow a wider range of more versatile controls than a tablet/touchscreen PC. The developer expects this type of computer to be in wide use by 2020. This really is well worth a watch.

You will have to adapt in order to keep up with societal and technological changes we will experience if you want to remain relevant and not being considered a "old geezer". :)  Though I do admit there are geezers who are pretty technically savvy but that's because they were willing to keep learning in order to keep up with us.

 

Also, if we do live long enough to a time when neural augmentations are commonplace, they probably will help you stay abreast with the rapid changes.


What are you without the sum of your parts?

I've been waiting to hear about this more, and now that I see it ... I'm no really very impressed.

 

It looks like the sixth sense interface, but with a limited window to view and stationary set up. Or like taking a cell phone and mounting it to an arm on a table to use augmented reality systems through the camera in back.

 

I plan to tinker with a sixth sense design sometime in the next year or so, and it'll be likely that I'll start with stationary, as projection systems are cheaper and more dependable at full size than the pico systems. but even then I feel that what I end up with will be better than the interface used here.

This ain't the future, screens will be a thing of the past, 3d or not, you'll be able to do this with augmented glasses like google glass and the like! Dead before it starts!

I still think it is really cool, even if there are other cool display options as well. The really great thing about all this technology is that people learn from each other and you got multiple paths and options to take, and even the ones that don't end up going mainstream my have aspects that are used in other mainstream ideas.

What a rubbish idea, you wouldn't be able to see the picture on a surface if it was a bright day, it looks like something I could do with an adapted Xbox kinect! The idea of seeing info about people on their t shirt, would kill the idea of getting to know people through conversation, can't see what this can do that google glass can't.

Well, it is the future, but it's the near future as opposed to the far future. Google glass is incredible as well, but this is a completely different type of technology.

It's not a product. It's open source, you can build one now, it's a gesture interface portable and wearable device. and how is it better than google glasses? Oh I don't know, maybe because I could use it like they did in one of their demos and play a game of virtual kick ball while standing on a subway train by aiming the projection down and kicking the ball between them. Because You could see what I see, it's shared display.

 

Which also means that I can bring up an image or document for you to see. and if they have it worked out as far as they planned, I can 'take a picture' of a pie chart document, have it display on my 'desktop', and make adjustments based on  new data and then you could snag the new file from me by visual grab or I could send it across country or world.

You should see the first prototypes for Google glass, they were unsightly and completely impractical, just wait 5 years. It does seem a little redundant with Google glass, but it has one advantage in that others can instantly see what you see without having the device themselves

Whilst I can agree with some people here that this isn't the most practical computer that's ever been designed, I do think it is an incredible creation simply due to the technology behind it. This same technology used in other products in the future could almost certainly become something that we use daily in practical ways.

i agree. this concept is good only with google goggles.

This is basically AR with a projector, I don't think it's more practical compared to glasses. I would prefer glasses over projectors for everything I think. The only advantage ist that others can se the same, but mostly I wouldn't want them to anyway. This kind of AR implementation I expect from Google Glasses in the future, that why I would buy them as soon there are out.
