Living in the Future, part 3

These two guys over at MIT are developing a cool new motion tracking interface for computers.

Using only a single webcam and brightly colored Lycra gloves, the user can see his or her hands appear on the screen almost instantly, and are able to manipulate objects in a virtual 3D environment.

Motion tracking technology has been in use for a while, but nothing so far has been this cheap and user-friendly.

  1. If we can evenly mesh organ/in organic seemlessly. I'm Thinking synthetic cells,
    artificial blood.

    Artificial ciber organic genes would help us better intergrate AI into upgradable programmable self directed human evolution.

    Then again I may be 30 to 50 years off.
    I'd volunteer to be one of the first
    experimental subjects.
