A beta build of NUIverse is now available for download at http://www.nuiverse.com, along with some brief documentation and additional data downloads.

Note that NUIverse is only available for installation on the Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSense, and that it is still one of my spare-time projects. As such, many features remain un-implemented and bugs remain to be fixed. However, I welcome feedback and will do my best to respond to any questions as soon as possible.

One of my colleagues came up with the name 'NUIverse', and since a major motivation behind creating this app was the opportunity to explore the use of Natural User Interface (NUI), and the name is a nice play on the spelling of 'Universe' the name has stuck.

While there are still a heap of tweaks and new features on my TODO list, I though it was a good time to share a short video captured from the app.

Video 1. NUIverse on Microsoft Surface 2.0.

Note that rather than using an overhead camera, I used FRAPS to capture video. Touch-points are highlighed as translucent circular markers.

  • Battlestar Galactica models (based on new TV series) by Coxxon

Update: I thought I'd also include a link to the other video mentioned in the comments, which films the app being used rather than capturing the screen.

This video has now moved, so I've udated the link below.
