Hand gestures control EM data

by Critical Commons Manager

In the Syfy series Alphas, Ryan Cartwright plays an autistic youth who is able to see and process the full spectrum of electromagnetic data that exists in the world around us. Cartwright's character, Gary Bell, uses minimal hand gestures to manipulate information streams that appear to him as a combination of iconographic and televisual imagery as well as abstract computer-generated graphics.
