The future is here and you better listen.

Tom Cruise uses gloves with sensors - so yesterday!

Consider what Project Natal is set to deliver (See Post: Thursday, June 4, 2009) This is our future of communication in the gaming, entertainment and shopping world. We are currently talking about web 2.0 concepts; however you don’t have to look far into the future to see what web 3.0 offers. “Minority Report” functionality is here. Governments across the globe for some years now have the ability to scan the crowds at major sporting events using software to map the faces of the crowd and predict those that are threats. They use pure mathematics via software algorithm to make the predictions. So the concept of mapping body or facial movements via a simple camera is easy to understand.

After witnessing the interactivity of future plans for project natal (See Post: Thursday, September 10, 2009) one does not have to look too far into the future of what technology, and the applications of this new experience brings.

Corporate’s will lead the way via their ability to deliver the hardware at affordable prices and access to popular content. However as Jonny Lee demonstrates (See Post: Monday, August 17, 2009) independents will still carve out a niche. One thing is sure that the websites we currently operate will be completely different in the next 3-5 years. Everybody should take note of what Project Natal and other advances will deliver. The physical keyboard and controller’s days are numbered. One will look back in 10 years from now and their memory will be a distant as the typewriter or fax is today.

Very exciting and very scary!
