05/20/2013, Leap Motion, the device built to bring touch-like gesture controls -without a touch screen- will enter into its beta phase soon. Before that, the company has posted a video to show what its vision for Leap Motion on Windows 8: watch the video above.

01/29/2013, It is fair to say that car Dashboard Instruments have not evolved remarkably over the past couple of decades. Somehow, we felt like something was going to change, but nothing did, at least in a big way. When the Nissan GTR Skyline came out, it did create a lot of buzz because it had an all LCD-display Dashboard with a user interface (UI) made by the Gran Turismo team at […]
01/05/2012, Before you take off your glasses and say, “Mother of God…”, read on. Bruno Zamborlin has come up with a unique microphone which is capable of creating a gestural interface using any hard surface that is available. Zamborlin himself cannot really explain the system which he has dubbed “concatenative synthesis,” and we have no idea as to what the small microphone is hooked up to in the video right after […]
08/08/2011, Remember earlier today we reported that TabCo was going to give the world a sneak peek of its tablet UI in a few hours? Well, the wait is over and TabCo has finally released a sneak peek of the tablet via a short video clip. Again, the video doesn’t tell us much about the tablet – don’t you think you’ve teased us enough already, TabCo?
06/13/2011, The user interface is one of the most important features of any operating system, and it looks like RIM has only found out about it recently. While the company bought The Astonishing Tribe to help develop the BlackBerry PlayBook UI, it looks like they’re going add another company to help out as well. The company has just been rumored to have struck a deal with YOU i Labs – an […]
04/03/2011, Microsoft has been seen experimenting with a new user interface for its future operating system, Windows 8, where toolbars might see the exit with a Ribbon instead, making us wonder whether mouse gymnastics are required if we were to access the traditional ‘File, Edit, View’ bar in a totally different manner. This shouldn’t come across as a surprise, however, since many applications in the current Windows 7, alongside Wordpad and […]
01/24/2011, So you’re all abuzz about HP’s Topaz specifications, and here is yet another leak from Precentral which might just have you wet your pants. After all, this leak will detail out the webOS user interface, but do bear in mind that nothing is final just yet since everything is in its preliminary round so the final product might offer some changes (for the better, hopefully). Among the improvements would include […]
01/23/2011, Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the longest time, most of you who have had experience with a HTC smartphone will know that the skin which it places on top of a regular smartphone operating system is known as the HTC Sense. Well, it seems that the Taiwanese company has now come up with a new trademark – “HTC Sensation”, which it applied as “user interface software” which […]
12/14/2010, It seems that the MeeGo user interface will find a home on tablets, as seen in a video that highlighted several of the menus, home screens, and the mobile Fennec (Firefox) browser. Although some of the design does resemble as though they had plenty of influence from Maemo 5 on the N900, most of the icons and user experience are pretty new in their own right. We are excited to […]
12/02/2010, A recent Apple patent filing shows that the company is looking to make iOS more graphics-oriented with a radial pop-up menu. Currently, in menu operations, pop-up menus are text-based and the radial dial that was shown with the iOS patent would show large icons that represent any possible actions or commands available to the user. Also, when pop-up menus have long lists that require scrolling, radial menus could make it […]
10/26/2010, Ubuntu 11.04 will replace its GNOME interface with Unity, which is a totally new interface that sees action in Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition. GNOME might come with panels at the top and bottom of the display, but Unity will instead feature a top panel and a panel on the left side that can be utilized to launch apps as well as access already running apps in a jiffy. While Unity […]
10/25/2010, Isn’t it the way of the world these days? Burger King says you can have it your way, while other marketing slogans and brands tend to push you towards making yourself happy (with a little bit of parting with your money too, of course). Well, the same can be said for user interfaces in the computing world – everyone wants to be unique. Mozilla Labs has taken note of this, […]
10/25/2010, The Slick UI surely lives up to its namesake, looking slick as all get out as it takes some of HTC’s Sense features while retaining a sense of originality. One of the more notable features of Slick UI would be the rather large circle located right in the middle of the screen, known as the Wonder Wheel. It will let you retrieve information easily from apps like Gmail, Twitter, Facebook, […]
10/07/2010, Just to get a better idea on how Cisco’s recently announced Umi looks like, check out our photo gallery of it in action. If you want to know whether to get Cisco’s Umi or Logitech’s Revue, you might want to refer to our previous post for more information before going ahead to make that purchase decision. After all, anything more than $100 certainly doesn’t fall under the jurisdiction of it […]
