John Underkoffle is the CEO of Oblong Technologies; a telecollaboration company specialising in non-traditional user interfaces (UIs). He was also the brains behind the “spatial operating environment” in the science fiction film Minority Report. Since then, Underkoffle has turned his movie magic into a commercial reality for conference room collaboration. In the very near future, he believes everyone will be touching the air like Tom Cruise to get stuff done in the office. Here is his ethos.
Science denial has real, societal consequences. Denial of the link between HIV and AIDS led to more than 330,000 premature deaths in South Africa. Denial of the link between smoking and cancer has caused millions of premature deaths. Thanks to vaccination denial, preventable diseases are making a comeback.
