I can see this as an electronic version of what legos used to be-a tool for imagination.  Kids can get together and create their own multiplayer video game. 

It could also be a good team building exercise for executives, of a certain age, who don't fully understand technology because of fear or just being out of touch.

I like it!  I can't wait to see the results from beta testing.

To me it looks like a great "gee whiz" type of technology, but I think I'll stick with my mouse and keyboard.  5 years down the road, however, who knows?

Cabe, this is a very interesting development, not the least in that it involves movement and perception in 3D.  Looking at the video you can see the game influence.  My son likes to play minecraft.  There is even someone who made electrical elements, so you could make a circuit, even a computer with the game.  Of course, the types of things that are in the video seem to be sort of conceptual.  I am not sure if this is a real game changer.  Using a keyboard and mouse people have made some pretty amazing and complex things with minecraft, for example.

When I think of CAD I think of precision.  I am not sure this interface gives you that. 

 

Another interesting thing is the use of hand held controllers.  I wonder if they looked a gestures only.  That would be really interesting.
