10. NATURAL USER INTERFACE (NUI) A system for human-computer interaction that the user operates through intuitive actions related to natural, everyday human behavior. A NUI may be operated in a number of different ways, depending on the purpose and user requirements. Some NUIs rely on intermediary devices for interaction (such as joystick for video gaming) but more advanced NUIs are either invisible to the user or so unobtrusive that they quickly seem invisible. Skills and Knowledge for Natural User Interface (NUI) include: Ease of use Ergonomics Facial recognition Fractal geometry Future appliances such as Google Glasses, Apple Watches, etc. Graphics Mathematics Physics Sensors/sensing Shadowing or mimicking Software development Text to speech (speech recognition) User Experience, User Center Design Copyright North Central Texas InterLink, Inc.
