Invisible Interfaces (07 May 1999)
While computers have become qualitatively smaller, cheaper, and more powerful, we still interact with them using techniques that differ very little from those of two decades ago. At Xerox PARC, the "Extreme UI" group has been investigating ways to enrich our connection with the computer: to investigate new interaction techniques which use everyday skills and the physical affordances of the devices themselves. By integrating the natural affordances of the device(s) with the natural gestures we already use, we hope to lower the cognitive effort required for interaction; to make the application interface "invisible".
