When Tom Cruise put on his data glove in Minority Report, the interface he wooshed through was the imaginative work of John Underkoffler.
John and his company, Oblong Industries, was founded to move this interface into the real world. Oblong is building apps for aerospace, bioinformatics, video editing and more.
Before founding Oblong, Underkoffler spent 15 years at MIT's Media Laboratory, working in holography, animation and visualization techniques, and building the I/O Bulb and Luminous Room Systems.
