Natural User Interface (NUI)

“NUI” or natural user interface. Incorporating more natural forms of interaction such as touch, speech, gestures, handwriting, and vision.

According to Steve Ballmer, Microsoft has been working on NUI-based technologies such as speech, touch, contextual and environmental awareness, immersive 3D experiences, and anticipatory computing — all with the goal of a computer that can see, listen, learn, talk and act smartly on our behalf. He says will look back at 2010 as the year we saw emergence of the natural user interface.
