Seamless interaction between man and machine will be decisive in future. The fewer interfaces, the better. The zero interface approach reduces barriers, allowing optimum user interaction with the content. This kind of interaction concept focuses increasingly on voice and gesture control, leading to a natural user experience.
Devices can not only be controlled using gestures via Google’s new Soli radar chip technology. Movements can also be interpreted or materials recognized. This technology allows smart phones to be controlled using hand gestures to, for example, skip songs, snooze alarms or mute calls. Systems that react to our voice, gestures, facial features and even our thoughts have long ceased to belong to the realms of science fiction movies.
