Interesting direct-manipulation UI tech out of Microsoft

TouchLight projects 3D-ish images, and uses 3 cameras to track hand gestures (a la Minority Report).

If you watch the demo, you'll notice that the user is moving very, very carefully, I suspect that they hired a Zen adept whose movements are so smooth that she doesn't throw off the tracking.

Still, pretty cool. Time to write MindDesign!
