THE BUZZ: Microsoft Research has revealed a brand new technology which uses Kinect and a projector to create a touch screen menu on any surface including desks, notepads and even your hand.

The new system called OmniTouch allows for a virtual touch screen menu to be places anywhere and the panel can even be projected onto moving objects with the screen automatically following the objects movement.

EGM’s TAKE: This is the future people. You wanted Minority Report? You may be closer to it then you thought.
