The future as depicted in the sci-fi flick ‘Minority Report’ is becoming more of a reality with Displair. An interactive airborne display, Displair takes fogscreens to a whole new level thanks to the introduction of multitouch gestural capabilities.

Although some might term Displair as a glorified humidifier, those who have a chance to interact with it will disagree wholeheartedly. Equipped with a projector and an infrared camera, Displair allows people to use it as they would a computer, although on a much more immersive level. On demo at the 2013 Consumer Electronic Show, people were able to play such applications as Google Earth and Fruit Ninja on Displair.

Displair has a Mark Zuckerberg-like backstory. It was developed in a student dorm in Russia by Maxim Kamanin.
