Talk about a "next-generation" user interface. This one is straight out of movies like Iron Man -- and coming soon to a Best Buy near you?
Imagine an "interactive, touchscreen-like system using objects in the real world" -- a system that lets you manipulate the content of a book or flyer much like you would the content of your smartphone. Using image-processing technology coupled with an ordinary webcam and a commercial projector, Fujitsu has done just that.
So, the user can actually "cut and paste" from a hard copy document, placing the cut text or image or within a digital document, for example. Or, "link" to digital content while viewing a hard-copy document. The possibilities are far-reaching and super exciting. The best part? Fujitsu plans to bring a commercial version to market by the end of 2014.
Watch the video for full details of the system's capabilities.
