I Do NUI ! …. Edusim and the Natural User Interface

My Natural User Interface credentials go back a ways with Edusim & the 3D/Interactive Surface work, back to 2007 to be exact. I am always excited when I see this field evolve ! The Leap Motion Sensor is nothing extremely new to those in the NUI field … what is new is the $70 price point and what appears to be very precise finger tracking …. This will bring natural 3D virtual object interaction a long ways in the coming years !

SparkTruck – Taking STEM to Schools & Creating Makers !

One survey of student attitudes towards STEM found that “it is almost universal that mathematics and science is seen as boring and not related to real life” – Enter SparkTruck


One longitudinal study
found that SparkTruck experience with high school scientific research bumped the actual decision to choose a career in science about 13%. SparkTruck is only an afternoon with some fun tools. So, as far as workable solutions go, it’s a relatively solid (and inexpensive) solution.
