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.

What do you think of the technology? Leave your thoughts below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
