Prototype Real / Digital Info Interface System
Using projection and gestures to create interactive relationship with information - video embedded below:
Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a next generation user interface which can accurately detect the users finger and what it is touching, creating an interactive touchscreen-like system, using objects in the real word.
“We think paper and many other objects could be manipulated by touching them, as with a touchscreen. This system doesn’t use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology.”
Using this technology, information can be imported from a document as data, by selecting the necessary parts with your finger.

Kazran as a child: Are you really a babysitter?
The Doctor: [holds up psychic paper] I think you’ll find I’m universally recognized as a mature and responsible adult.
Kazran as a child: It’s just a bunch of wavy lines.
The Doctor: Yeah? It’s shorted out. Finally, a lie too big.
I need this episode sooo bad.
Dean looks like he’s struggling to not hit on himself.
Wait- so if Sam sleeps with fem!Sam, do both of them die? Or do neither?
I’m a part of Lost Generation
and I refuse to believe that
I can change the world
I realize this may be a shock but
“Happiness comes from within”
is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
So in thirty years I’ll tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life
My employer will know that
I have my priority straight because
Is more important than
I tell you this
Once upon a time
Families stay together
But this will not be true in my era
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making
In the future
Environmental destruction will be the norm
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this earth
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.
there’s a great video of someone reading this poem
Fuckin love this poem
This was beautiful
Posting this because reasons
I wonder what non-whovians must be thinking about this
This took me no time at all to figure this was Doctor Who.
This is like the Whovian secret handshake, isn’t it?
This is my notification sound. People are always a bit confused about it.
