Gesture-based computing

Gesture-based computing - The 2010 Horizon Report is an attempted to look into a crystal ball and tell us what the next educational trend will be. I think Gesture-based computing will be one of these new trends. Did you see minority report? If you did you will remember the part in the movie were Tom Curse is manipulating a computer on a huge wall screen with movements of his hands. one of the weakest components of the computer is the human input interfaces that we use to manipulate what we want them to-do. The voice interface is not perfected and this looks to be one of the next user interfaces that will be come common palace in the next three to five years. Attached to this blog below is a short video demonstrating the Gesture-based computing.
