Look Ma, No Buttons: Futuristic touch-screen technology is quickly becoming a present-day reality on many consumer electronic gadgets

“In the 2002 thriller Minority Report, detective John Anderton, (played by Tom Cruise) uses gloved hands to manipulate images on three-dimensional charts. The depiction of futuristic technology was set in 2054.

The future arrived sooner than expected. The features that let Cruise’s character quickly sift through crime data represent a new breed of gesture-based, touch-sensitive technologies that are becoming a reality in 2007

  1. Hello,

    A strange question from my side:
    Can someone tell me the name of the song with the text “look ma, no buttons” and maybe some background information? Is it an American song for example?

    Thanx,
    Dieuwertje
