Posted Leave a commentPosted in General

There are certain news where you are proud to announce them. This is one of them.   I will present my master’s thesis from 06 to 10 March at the CeBIT 2012 in Hannover, Germany. With the slogan “Natural User Interface Learning Applications”, I will present the prototype of my educational application and give all visitors the opportunity to test its intuitive control via body movement and touch screen input. In the category “Making the Game” on my blog you already can get some information about the progress of my final thesis.   Even though it still is a bit down until then, I wanted to share this information today […]

Making The Game – Teil 3: Technische Grundlagen

Increasingly we read in test reports and journals of capacitive and resistive touch screens, but very few of us know what the differences, the advantages and the disadvantages are. Besides these two methods, there are other optical methods for detection of contact points, which are more often used in larger devices such as PCs and touch-tables.     Touchscreen technologies Touchscreens consist in most cases of the display, that is just like normal monitors used for image output, and the overlying touchscreen, which recognizes the contact points and passes them to the computer. The touchscreen consists of three components. The touch sensor, the controller and a software driver. The touch […]

A Natural User Interface, or NUI is a user interfaces which allows you to interact directly with a device by typing, swiping or simple touch. But not just smartphone users know how to use this new type of interface, even at ticket machines and ATMs, this new technology is already widely used. So far artificial input devices like mouse and keyboard were needed to operate a device. But now, through the use of Touch-Sensitive touch screens, just a simple touch of a finger is needed to achieve the same.   The well-known graphical user interface (GUI), which is mainly operated by moving the mouse has become obsolete by this new […]
