In other news Wii came up with the concept years ago.

The hi-tech computer system behind the film ‘Minority Report’ – where Tom Cruise speeds through video on a large screen using only hand gestures – is making its way into the real world.
American computer experts have revealed the software has become a reality – and they hope to sell it to law enforcement agencies around the world.

The interface developed by scientist John Underkoffler has been commercialized by the Los Angeles firm Oblong Industries as a way to sift through massive amounts of video and other data.

‘This system helps with big workflow problems.’
A key part of the system is the gesture interface, which the company calls the ‘g-speak’ spatial operating environment.

That grew out of a project by Underkoffler — then a scientist at the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology — for ‘Minority Report,’ before he became chief scientist at startup Oblong.
‘We have demo versions of this kind of software which show exactly the ‘Minority Report’ user experience, allowing you to move back and forth in time, or to zoom in to look at details,’ Kramer said.
