That "Minority Report" style interface for analysis services doesn't seem that far fetched. The data resources and UI components already exist. Microsoft Kinect and a star mapping algorithm and you're on your way.

I must say the whole idea of this sends shivers down my spine. I could just see it all now. People walking into walls or each other, people walking off stairs or into traffic, people driving thtrough intersections and running red lights and causing major injury accidents/and or death. There would have to be some very strictly enforced laws on when and where you could use these. Otherwise, this would make driving and texting seem like childs play. In a mobile world like we have today, this is a recipe for disaster IMHO.

Hmm... an interesting idea; however, I think that most people would get lost in say 7-dimensional space. Personally, whenever I am dealing with cubes, I fall back on my pretty thorough training in n-dimensional vector math an instead of space I think of abstract operators.

Sorry, but I can't let is slide. :-(

I'm sure most of you have heard of Google Glasses by now.


It is Google Glass, not Glasses. The reason they named it that way is because it has a single lens. Glasses have two.



To the point of your April Fool's joke - who knows. Maybe you are on target for some things that will be possible in the future. Think of all the technology we have today and how nobody envisioned it 40 years ago, and in some cases even 5 years ago.

I was speaking to my nephew while visiting for Easter. He is in school for electrical engineering. One point that came up is the story of how the Apollo missions had less computing power than an iPod. Not sure how true that is, but I know my first PC (486 with Turbo boost!!!) sure wasn't as powerful as my iPhone!

I do things today much easier with my handheld computer technology (phone, iPad, et cetera) than I ever imagined. Maybe we need to point Google in the direction you joked about and see what happens!

As I recall they used an 8-bit CPU and either 4K or 8K maximum program size. It was assembly code, but still that's not much if you're trying to do lunar insertion course corrections.

Talk about having to write tight, accurate code.
