The Department of Homeland Security and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory teamed up to produce this concept video which showcases the use of NUI in a disaster response scenario.
Interestingly enough, most of the technology is commercially available now and relatively affordable. The only exception is the heads up display in the car. I can’t say I’ve seen anything quite like that just yet on the street.
Another point to note is that there’s no concept of different applications: the entire experience is immersive. Chat, video, charts, maps, and web browsing all happen within context.
Very interesting indeed.
For a more detailed look at the video, Precision Information has provided annotated versions.
