... but enough hand-waving, let's talk On The Verge. Our last episode this year is today (Tuesday) at 6PM ET (true believers and long-time fans, note that we're starting an hour earlier than last time). It's going to be the Show to End All Shows™ (not actually trademarked, we just like the character) that you won't want to miss.
First up, we took a trip to Oblong industries in Los Angeles to check out the Minority Report-style work they're doing with natural gesture interfaces — truly futuristic stuff. Then Oblong co-founder John Underkoffler — the man who actually designed the interface for the film Minority Report before making it a reality — will join us in studio to talk about a future where science fiction blends into science fact. Additionally, Dieter Bohn sat down with Research in Motion CEO Thorsten Heins to talk about the challenges in keeping BlackBerry competitive when it reinvents itself for next year's BB10 launch. Plus, of course, hijinks and shenanigans from Paul, Nilay, and Josh.
