The following is a new post issued by HighTechPoint on behalf of First Class Posting. The following are excerpts:

“It might be fair to say that Steven Spielberg’s early-ought’s sci-fi flick Minority Report sparked the imagination in much the same way as Star Trek did in the 1960′s. As Star Trek was integral in inspiring the personal computer and the cell phone, Minority Report arguably had the same impact on user interface technology. Had we not seen Tom Cruise commanding a supercomputer with his fingertips, would we have the Nintendo Wii and the Xbox Kinect? Would touchscreen controls be quite so sophisticated as they are today? Maybe we would have, eventually, moved away from the mouse, controller and keyboard as our primary input devices, but it may well be that seeing that vision come to life in a multi-million dollar sci-fi spectacle kickstarted designers the world over to get it in gear,” said Amy Taylor with First Class Posting.

“Home automation is referenced in the Kickstarter page, but a lot more possibilities remain open. Cars that unlock and start the ignition when you walk up to them and lock up when you walk away, computers that go to sleep when you’re not nearby, smartphones that can tell when you’re reaching for them. Proximity plus motion control means new horizons in automation.”

“Logbar Inc. have, at the very least, broken the ice when it comes to giving this kind of input to consumers,” comments technology expert Jason Hope, “whether or not the Ring winds up being everything that was promised.”

Amy Taylor continues: “Of course, we will simply have to wait and see how precise and how useful the Ring really is, but with customizable gesture controls and SDKs available for the asking, it’s easy to imagine that developers will cover every base that the Ring’s creators may have overlooked. As of the time of this writing, the Kickstarter is still open to donations for those who want to get in on the ground floor, with the page trending very strongly.”
