After spending a moment looking back at the past in my previous post, now it is time to look into the future. Foundry Group invested in a company called Oblong about a year ago, but when we made our investment, we couldn’t say much at the time (though Brad did hint about their Minority Report UI heritage) because Oblong wasn’t quite ready to tell the world exactly what they were doing. Oblong was Foundry’s first investment in our HCI theme. Well, today they have officially de-cloaked and have launched their website. Go check out Oblong.com and get a feel for the mouse-free computing environment of the future: the g-speak spatial operating environment.
