    Ah that video is amazing. I love the idea of having one hand as a menu and one as the stylus. Kinda reminds me of the traditional painter who uses a palette and a brush, except the palette has infinite potential arrangements.

    I'm imagining common uses of smartphones but with that UI, for example taking a picture of your food. Maybe you frame the photo with both hands, take the picture, then you can edit the image with controls that appear out of one hand, perhaps different filters, etc.

    That assumes VR would be used to take food pictures in the real world though... In the same way skeuomorphism helped people understand technology through real world metaphors, VR will probably have to be similar to the real world at first, before it starts to diverge
