John Underkoffler, co-founder of Oblong Industries, reveals the boundless future of hand gestural graphical user interfacing.
Sprouted from the woods of Pennsylvania, Underkoffler spent more than a decade at MIT. After three degrees and acquiring a practical knowledge of holography, Underkoffler became one of Hollywood's principal science advisors, designing futuristic worlds for films like Minority Report. Oblong Industries, his LA-based company, has been inventing gesturally-rich information environments since 2006.
John Underkoffler, visionary designer behind Minority Report, describes how his work on a hand gestural computer interface inspired the film, and how his work is leading to more advanced computer interfacing.
