A Glimpse Ahead… Microsoft’s Future Vision and NUI

Microsoft concluded their Future Vision Series with a stunning montage of technologies... the 2019 Future Vision Montage: Envisioning the Future showcases several examples of how current prototypes may evolve in the years ahead. Here are some of our favored highlights:

  • Keys and objects having associated and contextual UI.
  • Advance gesture, pen and touch computing across surfaces.
  • Customer tracking in dynamic retail environments.
  • Organic flexable and touchable web based news paper.
  • Interactive connected meeting environments.
  • Using handheld device to augmented images displayed on virtual wall.
  • Handheld and wearable based augmented reality overlays.

I believe this a great start and this year will be a turning point in truly starting to defining, discovering, sharing and understanding useful interaction techniques.

We have a lot of work to do... NUI brings a vast problem that encompasses almost all prior scientific research and knowledge. This has and continues to be the focal point in which I will aim unite our community under. So join the discussion here: http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewthread/4619/
