by Linas Staniukynas
As we move further into the 21st Century, our thinking about how we interact with computers and our understanding of interfaces is evolving at a rapid pace.

NUI technologies like Voice, Gaze and Gesture are transforming our interactions with technology. Access to it can be done by going beyond the screen. This new found agency to interact has great potential to empower us, and it’s not as far away as we may think.
