Abstract: Quantum Interface pioneered the concepts of using motion to scroll, select, actuate and provide variable control, and introduced these at the first SID/TGM conference. Today the first waves of these technologies are being seen in most areas, with motion now considered the hottest area in UI and UX markets. The presentation itself will be the first of its kind, using a mixture of touch and touchless dynamic controls, including live demonstrations of current and future software systems, mobile, environmental and entertainment controls, sensor fusion technologies and Heads Up Displays (HUDs), all based on Quantum Interface's proprietary motion IP and solutions, including predicting User intent (Precognition™) a forward way of making digital information, visible.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear and experience Quantum Interface in the Bay Area!
