As part of their 100th anniversary celebration, tech company Hitachi displayed their new gesture-based interface that allows users to feel not so unlike Tom Cruise in Minority Report. The interface uses a projection-based system and one camera to track user movements, allowing the system to detect what the user wants to do.

Hitachi says they hope that gesture-based interfaces will become more mainstream (by mid-2011) and be incorporated into advertising, digital signage, and medical applications. Check out the video and see how gesture-based tech could make things like TV and movies much more fun. Stats for Gesture-Based Tech Trending: Older & Mild
