My Minority Report Interface is Coming…

Back in September 2005, I was interviewed by Communication Arts about our site, Who is Augustine, for Jonathan Safran Foer’s Everything is Illuminated. The final question of the interview was about my dream computer set-up, to which I promptly replied: “I’m looking into getting one of those translucent screens that Tom Cruise used in Minority Report. If anyone notices them on the market in the next century, please drop me a line.”

It looks like the software is coming from Leap Motion. Now I just need to speak with Paul Bettany about providing the automated voice for my Jarvis.
