MINORITY RePORT
NEON-NOIR Works Cited Minority Report - www.imdb.com/ [35] SixthSense makes Minority Report a Reality - www.gnews.com/technology/
Software news posted by David Finklehorn on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 The iconic and cool technology interface which featured in Minority Report could become a reality in the next ten years according to Dr Pattie Maes, who leads the Fluid Interfaces Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Dr Maes and her team of researchers have developed a technology prototype called SixthSense, which, in her own words would provide: “seamless access and easy access to meta-information”. Confused? Don’t worry. Ignoring the rather uninsightful term “meta-information”, what the tech-bods at MIT have created is a device about the same size as a mobile phone, that can interact with any object and any surface and give you relevant information about it from the internet. What does this have to do with looking like Tom Cruise? Well the device incorporates a projector, and images can be manipulated by special tags which can be attached to your fingers, much the like the glowing glove that Cruise wears in the film Minority Report. Dr Maes said that the tags could be incorporated into anything from an item of clothing, to jewellery, even coloured nail varnish. [35] TECHnology Link:

They use three genetically altered humans (called "Pre-Cogs") with special powers to see into the future and predict crimes beforehand. John Anderton heads Precrime and believes the system's flawlessness steadfastly. However one day the Pre-Cogs predict that Anderton will commit a murder himself in the next 36 hours. Worse, Anderton doesn't even know the victim. He decides to get to the mystery's core by finding out the 'minority report' which means the prediction of the female Pre-Cog Agatha that "might" tell a different story and prove Anderton innocent. Written by Soumitra (minority report). StorY What would you do if you were accused of a
murder, you had not committed... yet? Everybody Runs The system is perfect
until it comes after you. The Future Can Be Seen. Murder Can be Prevented. The Guilty Punished Before the Crime
is Committed. The System is Perfect. It's Never Wrong. Until It Comes After You. Everybody Runs... You Can't Hide Three years before production began, Steven Spielberg assembled a team of sixteen future experts in Santa Monica to brainstorm out the year 2054 for him. This team included: Neil Gershenfeld, professor at the Media Lab at MIT; Shaun Jones, director of biomedical research at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency); William Mitchell, dean of the school of architecture at MIT; Peter Calthorpe, the New Urbanism evangelist; Jaron Lanier, one of the inventors of virtual reality technology; Douglas Coupland, author and commentator; Stewart Brand, author, scientist and co-creator of The Well on-line community; Kevin Kelly, founder of Wired Magazine; Harald Belker, car designer and John Underkoffler, the science and technology advisor for the movie (Minority Report). TECHnology The small storage media used throughout the film
are clear plastic versions of Iomega's PocketZip disks
(minority report). The tiny, in-the-ear cell phones used throughout the movie (but most noticeably by Pre-Crime Director Lamar Burgess (played by Max von Sydow)) in the film's final scenes, are actually Bang and Olufsen earphones minus the connection cables (minority report). Steven Spielberg chose the special effects company Imaginary Forces to design the film's prevision sequences because he liked the title sequence they designed for Se7en (1995) (Minority report). ALL of Spielbergs's MEN At the police station, the officers talk about the metaphysical proof of precognition. Chief Anderton (Tom Cruise) rolls a red ball along a table to demonstrate the law of cause and effect to Det. Witwer (Colin Farrell). All of this is an allusion to the famous claim of philosopher David Hume (1711-1776), that by observing billiard balls you can actually demonstrate that cause and effect does not exist but is merely a habitually created fiction of the mind. THEPHILOSOPHY of cause & effect
Minority Report is a futuristic film, which portrays elements of a both dystopian and utopian future. [37]

Film (FILM) - Wikipedia(film) Color & Palette The scene in which Anderton is dreaming about his son's kidnapping at the pool is shot in "normal" color.From a stylistic standpoint, Minority Report resembles Spielberg's previous film A.I. [36] The picture was deliberately over-lit, and the negative was bleach-bypassed during post-production. [38] This gave the film a distinctive look, with colors de-saturated, yet the blacks and shadows have a high contrast, looking almost like a film noir picture. [38]Elvis Mitchell, formerly of the The New York Times, commented that "[t]he picture looks as if it were shot on chrome, caught on the fleeing bumper of a late '70s car." [39] The film is from a The Philip K. Dick Story (cont). Technology

Wall-sized displays, gesture recognition, and seamless information convergence: it’s the stuff that Interface Designer dreams are made of... [40]
The film featured a number of representations of near-future technology, many of which spoke to issues on the social implications of these technologies. Included were"Driverless cars which could be commanded by the police to deliver their occupant to the police station. [40]
Iris recognition systems which tracked the movements of all citizens, and were also used for authentication and payment, and to deliver highly targeted advertising to passers-by. Anderton has his eyes replaced to avoid this. [40]
Videophones in common use. [40]
Mobile surveillance robots which swarm through a building and use iris recognition to find a sought person. [40]
A high speed gestural user interface for computers, where hands are moved in front of a screen. This is sometimes referred to as the "Minority Report Interface."[40] [40] (Interface) - The Minority Report Interface http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?104 TECHNOLOGICAL IMAGES Film Images STORY Film Trailer & Clips
