Are you ready right now? Real-time Security Threat Analysis and Information Sharing

Oblong was founded in 2006 with the goal of creating the next generation of computing interfaces.

We’re a company of designers, programmers, and hardware engineers. We’re committed to a full stack approach to technology development. We work on the most interesting problem we can think of, which is how to make computers more flexible, capable, useful, interactive, and empowering.

Our Chief Scientist, John Underkoffler, designed the computer interfaces in the film Minority Report.

Today we sell commercial versions of the Minority Report computers.

These are, famously, gestural systems. But they do much more than simply allow users to point and gesture to interact with computers. (And, in fact, gestures themselves are optional.) These are spatial, networked, multi-user, multi-screen, multi-device computing environments.

Here’s John Underkoffler at TED in 2010 talking about Oblong’s motivations and technology.
