I hope it can identify when you want to use it... What if you have an itch on your nose, or if you have to point out something to your friends.

I think the pieces of the technology are already there and just need to be put together. We already have glasses-less 3D-tv's all we need to do is make the 3d work from wider viewing angles. In addition, through Microsoft's Kinect you have the ability to understand gestures in real time. My guess is that they've upgraded the ability of the system to interpret fingers & multiple hands etc. and integrated that with a 3d display technology.

I wouldn't want to use controls like this. Holding hands raised in front of you is tiring. You know how fighters start lowering their guard after a few rounds? That's ten, fifteen minutes. Try keeping your hands raised and waving around for three or four hours.

This comment right here. This is also my concern.

Yes I can see it now, instead of sitting on my lazy ass with hands resting comfortably on my mouse and keyboard, I'll be standing up with my arms outstretched twinkling my fingers just so I can read the news on the net.

Just because a person has not physically used this interface does not mean that they cannot form a realistic opinion of it. We have seen demos of such, albiet less advanced, interface concepts for years. Also, could you imagine a company letting you work for half the time because the interface makes you "tired" ? I doubt it.

I work in the mechanical design field and to me a gesture-based 3d interface *is* completely useless for anything but presentations. How exactly are you supposed to input exact numbers & complex commands? Now for presentations, as long as the presenter is not overzealous with radical hand movements while speaking this might be a usefull tool. key word... might.

On the other hand, a true 3d (hologram) display *would* be usefull. In *this* circumstance a few simple gestures to rotate, pan, zoom in and perhaps form an exploded view could be handy. The actual design phase would be better accomplished with a 2d interface though. Unless you are somehow comparing this to the ironman movie, in which case the programs the supercomputer would need to do this would be a work of art. The ability to instantly design & create a working mechanical piece from mere finger strokes is genious. Sorry for the sarcasm.. but hollywood is hollywood, at least for the next few hundred years.

The same research society responsible for the development of the MP3 compression
Great... maybe we'll have to pay licensing fees to legally move our hands around in front of a computer now.

This interface would be hell to manipulate a spreadsheet or database with thousands of records. Heck current touchscreen technology is useless for data manipulation!

I've wanted a interface like this for years. Will this tech replace keyboards, and mice? Nope. At best this will compliment traditional input methods.

Though, who among us saw the holographic display tech in the IronMan movies, and didn't say, "Yes, that is what I want."
