The gspeak platform

Oblong Industries is remaking the world of computers.

Our technology transforms the way you work, create, and collaborate. The era of one human, one mouse, one screen, one machine is giving way to what’s next: multiple participants, working in proximity and remotely, using a groundbreaking spatial interface to control applications and data spread across every display. This is what Oblong builds. It’s why we’re here.

The g‑speak™ platform


The g‑speak SOE (spatial operating environment) is Oblong’s radically new platform. The SOE made its public debut in the film Minority Report, whose bellwether interface one of Oblong’s founders designed. But its full history extends backward to three decades of research at the MIT Media Lab. The g‑speak SOE implements the biggest advance in human-machine interface in twenty-five years. It also introduces

  • a new model for multi-process cooperation
  • a real-world geometry engine for gestural input and multi-display output
  • an athletic new network layer for data translation, encapsulation, and transport

… and a host of other crucial innovations.

It’s the platform for what’s next.
