Swyp: Moving Files Across Devices With A Swipe [video]

We may be still a few years away from a Minority Report-esque reality where all of our computing is controlled through grandiose gestures from outstretched arms. But after seeing the MIT media lab-developed SWYP technology, that reality might be closer than we think.

The open-sourced software essentially facilitates cross-application and cross-device data exchange through intuitive swipe gestures. Interestingly enough, the hardware being used (in this case, an iPhone and an iPad) weren’t hacked or altered in any way — SWYP takes advantage of the user’s existing wifi networks, Facebook and Gmail accounts, and associates that information with a simple, real-time gesture to transfer the desired data from device to device.

Check out this video demonstration to see SWYP in action.
