The Future of Editing?

The new TAMPER edit system from Oblong Industries.

Check out this cool video from High Definition magazine’s website.

After watching this video about a completely motion-controlled editing system, the movie ‘Minority Report” comes to mind, specifically the scenes with Tom Cruise’s character utilizing a strikingly similar interface at his police headquarters. Art imitates life imitates futurists’ conception of the future imitates life, I guess.

Seems like a very cool concept… reminds me of how it must have been for those cutting on film to make a transition to non-linear computer-based systems from a linear, table-based world.

I guess this video begs the question… are we seeing the future of video and film editing right here?
