WWT and Kinect Demo at MIX–the universe at your fingertips.

Ever wonder when you’d see the “Minority Report” beyond the silver screen?   Beyond the FX you need the technology that will enable the vision – with Kinect we finally have the technology and tools to enable the magic of software to enable the experience.

At MIX11 the WWT team showed the integration of NUI  via Kinect and Worldwide Telescope and Jonathan Fay demo’d it during the keynote.  The curved three screen setup used at MIX11 really immerses you in the experience – talk about getting “lost in space” – this is the type of data exploration Microsoft Research envisions that every scientist/researcher could use.
