Latest Telepresence and Visual Collaboration News:
Viewing the World Through Pixels is the Future of the Workplace
A vacuum in professional computing is the result of the evolution from desktop to laptop to mobile device. John Underkoffler, CEO, Oblong Industries, views the world through pixels as the key to filling that hole, which he shared in his Tuesday Smart Building Conference address: 'The Future of Work - Workplace Collaboration Thrives in the Spatial Operating Environment.'
As an advisor to the oft-exemplified futuristic film "Minority Report," Underkoffler reluctantly shared a clip he musingly hoped was "the last time we have to look at this." He asked the audience to watch it with new eyes. Instead of being wowed by the way ahead of its time gesture technology, something he derided as "not what's important," attendees were asked to look for what was missing.
"This sequence is as much about the collaboration and the room than it is the UI," he said.
