Upon first glance this technology "looks cool" but I wonder if anyone in the biz of image analysis, first responder, or military would be willing to stand up and go thru the conductor motions to get actual work done or get a point accross. I think that the concept is visually appealing but I'm betting that the technology will shrink to monitor size and be used within a robust network albeit with a mouse.
bill, i wonder what industry you're in. this is insanely useful for huge numbers of people-- i don't know how many times i've wished i could have two mice, or wondered why mouse coordination is so much worse than hand coordination. this has great applications in almost every field-- letting multiple fingers, hands, and people collaborate on the same computer.
