Natural User Interface (NUI)


What is NUI?


Currently we are focusing on Natural User Interface (NUI) development in the Avtex lab. We are leveraging the Microsoft Kinect and Microsoft Tellme platforms for gesture and speech recognition experiments along with Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 Slate PC's for touch based development.


According to Wikipedia, Natural user interface, or NUI, is the common parlance used by designers and developers of computer interfaces to refer to a user interface that is effectively invisible... essentially think of it as Gesture, Speech and Touch.


 


Connecting with Kinect


Recently Avtex has been exploring the Microsoft Kinect platform to fully understand how it can be used to develop business applications.  The Kinect platform provides gesture and speech practicabilities that we are incorporating into our experiments.  Check out the video below of Mike Hodnick demonstrating moving objects in 3D space.
