A NUI relies on a user being able to carry out relatively natural motions, movements or gestures that they quickly discover control the computer application or manipulate the digital content.
natural - organic, unthinking, prompted by instinct user interface - the points at which a user interacts with a system
Established in 2006, The Natural User Interface Group is an open source community that creates and shares interaction techniques & standards that benefit designers & developers throughout the world.
We offer a collaborative environment for scientists that are interested in learning and developing modern Human/Computer Interaction methods and concepts.
Our research includes topics such as: computer vision, touch computing, voice & gesture recognition, experience design and information visualization.
