Why Minority Report Was Spot On

A great article by The Guardian's Charles Arthur who compares some of the technological wonderland shown in The Minority Reports and how we're quickly making sci-fi fantasy a reality.

It's only eight years since Steven Spielberg's Minority Report amazed audiences with its futuristic technology. But now science is fast catching up. Specifically, the moment in the film Minority Report when Cruise, playing police chief John Anderton, tries to figure out film footage and computer data by waving his hands around in mid-air to manipulate it: turning it, shrinking it, pushing it aside, revolving it. Give it time: in a few years, we'll more than likely be controlling our computers in a similar way.
