OSNews, Generic OSes Sometimes it seems that every new OS that comes out these days is ultimately and altogether quite similar. "It's all been done before," we sigh as new system after system is released with only eye-candy the apparent difference for most users. This new OS, named "g-speak" by its creators, will give one a run for his money. Using special gloves, a user of the system gestures his way about the OS on several wall-sized displays that interact with one another. The makers of g-speak call it "the first major step in [a] computer interface since 1984." Perhaps they are right. See the neat video here. You can even go so far as to dust off your Tom Cruise Minority Report action figure to better savor the future with.

It has some uses but is kinda limited to a niche market. Those needing to work with photos or full pages and organizing them this would be good for. Also, this would be great for sports games. Tennis anyone? Imagine a bunch of wii sports ported to this.

But that's where the fun ends. Anyone wanted to type of a document or create content would not find this very useful in its current state. A keyboard would win hands down (pun intended) over this Minority Report like system.
