The Engaging User Experience & the Natural User Interface
Tim Huckaby, InterKnowlogy, USA
The combination of primary tenants of an engaging user experience and the revolution in the Natural User Interface (NUI) provides a great opportunity for museums to enhance the overall user experience of their exhibits. As the world of NUI evolves, and revolutionary 3D camera devices like Kinect for Windows pave the path for gesture and voice controlled interfaces, there is a demand for museums to create increasingly sophisticated user experiences in their exhibits. A touch, gesture or voice optimized experience requires one to think of visual design in a whole new way and demands a new set of usability skills. This demo focused session will take an amusing look at the past and take an impressive look at some of the best NUI software being built today and into the immediate future and will even delve into the NUI of the future.
