Minority Report finally becomes a reality: new hi-tech video wall will let law enforcement agencies sift through data with a wave of their hand

  • Could be used by intelligence agencies to track huge amounts of data
  • Firm says its technology will 'fundamentally change' the way we use computers

 

The hi-tech computer system behind the film 'Minority Report' - where Tom Cruise speeds through video on a large screen using only hand gestures - is making its way into the real world.

American computer experts have revealed the software has become a reality - and they hope to sell it to law enforcement agencies around the world.

The interface developed by scientist John Underkoffler has been commercialized by the Los Angeles firm Oblong Industries as a way to sift through massive amounts of video and other data.
