TI Plans Minority Report UI Using ARM SoC + Projector 72

siliconbits writes "Texas Instruments wants to deliver a Minority Report-like user interface by combining its just-announced OMAP 5 platform, which is based on two Cortex A15 cores, with one of its own DLP pico projectors and a camera. The US semiconductor giant wants to pioneer the use of so-called next generation natural user interfaces by adding hardware support for stereoscopic 3D, gesturing including proximity sensor and interactive projection. This is reminiscent of the SixthSense, a wearable device invented by Pranav Mistry, which was demoed back in March 2009 by the then-PhD student of MIT's Media Lab Fluid Interfaces Group at TED."

    I've been too comfortable, sitting in a big desk chair all day, hardly moving a mouse a few inches to summon an entire world of information. What I really want is to be standing up all day in front of a huge transparent screen, holding my hands up in the air and wildly waving my arms around. That would be a huge improvement.

An elephant is a mouse with an operating system.
