One of the challenges in computing is to make the interface more human, and to enable people to communicate with their computers more naturally. We’ve already seen huge advances in voice recognition, but the next phase will be to use 3D cameras to make measurements, detect gestures, and recognise facial expressions.
- Emma is a fun communications app. It recognises facial expressions in a video call and adds emotionally relevant animations around the person speaking.
- Posture Monitor could improve wellbeing by suggesting when a computer user needs breaks or alerting them to bad posture.
- Seed is a gesture-controlled puzzle game, with the player guiding a floating seed on its journey.
- Orthosense helps orthopaedic specialists by measuring a patient’s hand and wrist movements as they rehabilitate.
- Mansion Ravenous is an adventure game, where players use their hands to pick up, rotate and examine objects.
