Future of Tui and HCI?

Where is the world heading now?

Minority Report?-gesture and vision controlled

Ubiquitous Computing-Where everything is connected

where the computer technology interaction fades to the backgground and is not noticed. The user is the primary and seemingly only focus.

4s siri control!
New, perhaps, organic material?

Even more tangible physical ways of manipulating tech?

Highlighting past research papers


Nose touch phone?
Smooth transiton of information from device to table?

TUI in Summary

Now that the semester is over... Tangible User Interfaces in summary!

  • Makes way for full body interaction
  • Multiperson collaborations
  • Intuitive metaphoric life interaction
  • High cost and maintenance
  • Not easily adaptable to multiple and new applications
