Microsoft could very well be hot on the traisl of a new display technology which will lean more “towards being an interactive window on the digital world, where the display will know who and where the user is, present content that is context aware, and allow natural interactions with the display surface.” This prototype is known as the Wedge, where it will rely on imaging light guide technology that allows cameras and light sources to be multiplexed in a display. Apart from that, it also boasts support for simultaneous capture of gestures on or above the surface. What we’re talking about here would mean the ability to achieve the whole Minority Report 3D gesture navigation and interaction in real life without waiting for another decade. It won’t be cheap when available, that’s for sure.
