Multi-Touch Hologram Workspace from Minority Report is Now Real

I knew when I saw Minority Report back in ’02 that we’d be seeing that cool holographic projection technology in the real world sooner or later. Well, voila — it’s 2008 and Obscura Digital’s new VisionAire is here — it’s an early iteration of what we may be working with in the future: multi-touch holographic displays.

The technology senses where your hands are and lets you manipulate a 3D hologram, allowing you to flip, zoom, spin, shrink, and discard images just like Tom Cruise did in the movie. Pretty sweet… Perhaps the vertical magnetic highway from the film is next?

Check out the video for a demo.
