Hand Gesture Holographic Interface Demo (BitRebels.com)

Our favorite sci-fi billionaire is at it again. This time it’s a holographic gesture system. Y’know…a year after implementation, nerds around the world will have the upper body strength of Mr. Universe!

I could see this working well for specific applications (design, CAD, art, medicine, etc.), but games? Hmmm.

******************************
The Iron Man movies have become synonymous with next generation technology. Many innovators are trying to recreate the magical interfaces that we are now used to seeing on the silver screen. One of those people is billionaire and space age fanatic Elon Musk, who’s been known to take ideas and realize them with the help of his earned fortune. Tony Stark’s Jarvis holographic interface is just one of the technologies that Elon Musk has been trying to recreate.

A couple weeks ago, Elon Musk tweeted that he and his SpaceX team had just built and 3d printed parts for a rocket using a hand gesture system which he was eager to showcase. The video was uploaded recently, and since then, Mr. Musk has made several intriguing updates about what goes on over at his innovative company.

Even though the expectations were almost too high, people were still impressed by the innovative way this system utilizes hand gestures to interact with the objects on the screen. The ability to model and alter objects by just using hand gestures is a a huge optimization. If the team manages to incorporate a holographic interface using Displair, or something similar, this technology could rapidly become something that is really close to what we are used to seeing in the Iron Man movies.

In this video, we are taken through the process of building the virtual reality holographic interface system Elon Musk and his team have been working on. Even though it’s not a legit holographic interface, it still is in a way. By using virtual reality glasses, the system allows the user to seamlessly operate in unlimited space. The question is whether or not virtual reality can be called a holographic interface, or if it is still just a virtual reality system. Either way, with people like Elon Musk working on holographic interface systems and spending millions on developing software and hardware to bring them to reality, I am quite sure that we’ll be seeing some pretty cool stuff very soon.
