That’s what Munich-based startup Ubi Interactive can do with Ubi, a plug-and-play gesture control system that uses Microsoft’s Kinect to turn any surface into a 3D touchscreen, Minority Report style.
What is Ubi’s plug-and-play system? Well, it’s a combination of the Ubi engine (a PC-compatible software) and a depth sensor camera that could be attached to a regular projector. The depth sensor camera captures the gestures, while the Ubi engine interprets them as command inputs.
But, does Ubi work? Here’s a demo video by ©stevecla from YouTube:
That’s pretty impressive technology. And just as Anup Chathoth, one member of Ubi Interactive’s three-man team said, it’s like having “an 80-inch screen you can carry inside a laptop case” – convenient and albeit fantastically inexpensive.

As a tribute to the biggest Bentley engine, the famous 6.75 litre version powering the luxurious Mulsanne limousines, the Bentley 6.75 chronograph from Breitling ramps up the power and the audacity in an entirely black-clad limited series.
This midnight-hued livery, achieved by a special ultra-resistant carbon-based treatment, enhances the sporting style of the satin-brushed steel case with its taut, dynamic lines and its knurled bezel inspired by Bentley’s famous radiator grilles.
The dial also exudes dark elegance, enhanced by a vertical open-worked motif offering a glimpse of the movement.
The caseback springs its own surprise, since the five-spoke motif reprising the distinctive design of Bentley wheel rims also appears in black against the metallic background. The selfwinding chronograph movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute), is distinguished by its original “large aperture calendar” system displaying the date in a highly readable manner via two distinct indicators: one for the tens and the other for the units.
Issued in a 1,000-piece limited edition, the Bentley 6.75 Midnight Carbon comes on a rubber strap with a central raised motif echoing that of the bezel. Sheer class, clad in black and signed Breitling for Bentley.
