Perceptive Pixel, Inc. was founded by Jeff Han in 2006 as a spinoff of the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences to develop and market the most advanced multi-touch system in the world.
A five-months-old child lying in his cradle, looking upwards with curiosity and interest at a group of toy bees hung over the cradle, flowing around in the air; the neonate stretches his arm in order to grasp the bees, but doesn't reach them. Those colored moving stimuli are very attractive for the newborn, and he acts expressing his interest.
Natural Interaction is the investigation of the relationships between humans and machines following this vision: we create interactive artifacts that respect and exploit the natural dynamics through which people communicate and discover the real world.
Our research is aimed at creating technology-enhanced spaces that sense and understand human behaviors and expressions, and present digital content as it was real, physical stuff.
