A good number of people I know have gotten “the text message”. You know, the one that tells you – “Hey you, quit hogging all the bandwidth, why don’t you use more Wi-Fi and stay out of my yard”. Yes, I love to be told by a company that I’m using their services, which I pay for, so much I need to be punished.
This past week I was able to speak to a large room of developers at the Gravity Center, who were all there to learn more about developing for Kinect. Which is really developing for sensors – of course Kinect development is much more exciting than sensor development You could also say it’s designing for NUI – Natural User Interfaces, ways you’d expect to interact with interfaces if we didn’t have things like mice in the way. I was asked to speak, as a Designer (and the only one in the room) on the trends of Kinect interfaces, and give my perspective.
