We covered the Ultimate Coder Ultrabook Challenge last year but that wasn’t the only competition being run by Intel to promote software development on an Ultrabook. The Ultrabook Experience Software Challenge was running too and the winning entry was 4tiitoo’s NUIA Imagine. It includes gesture control, touch control, voice control and true eye-tracking using the Tobii eye-tracking hardware.
Intel have published a very useful case study on the software which includes a good look at the development process including the tools, the process and details of the SDKs and hardware used.
Look at the hardware and software involved today and imagine this being integrated into hardware and operating systems in the future. The technology involved is evolving quickly and applications like NUIA Imagine help us to learn about what’s possible in the future.
I tool a look at NUIA Imagine at MWC last month so to see the software in action, watch the video below.
The technology involved is evolving quickly and 4tiitoo have just launched a kickstarter project to build eyeCharm, an eye tracking hardware extension for the Microsoft Kinect. You can find out more about that here.
Again, if you want to know more about the NUIA Imagine project, check out the case study here.
