Last week, NUI launched two brand new applications at Dreamhack and Forskarfredag (Researchers Friday) in Skelleftea 24-26 of September.
The sandbox application
Gravitoy is a physics application with 2 modes (Sandbox and Stacks).
Sandbox is an environment for drawing objects and interact with them through physics.
Stacks is an object stacking game where 2 players play against each other to stack different shaped objects, with the goal to build the highest tower and reach point X. To make the game a bit more interesting, we have added options to change gravity and remove and add objects to the other players field, to increase the difficulty level.
This physics based application that we developed is a good platform to further develop multi-touch games on and to enrich our other future applications.
Aside to that, we launched a 3d model viewer application which allows users to interact with 3d models. This is a good application for companies showing their products, for example cars, shoes or other products in retail stores that can be placed in a 3d environment to enable users to easily see products from all angles. Imagine the ability for architects to digitally interact with their buildings that they are conceptualizing, with this 3d model viewer.

NUI is partnering with Durham University on SynergyNet, a 1,5 million GBP government funded project spanning a period of 3 years, that focuses on integrating multi-touch technology within the educational sector to create the classroom of the future.
The project got featured on Engadget, BBC and Gizmodo.

Somebody at NUI Group pointed to this great tool. Not bad to run in to on a boring Sunday.
I just installed it and it is indeed as gorgeous as it looks.
Of course it works even sexier with my Apple Mac Book Pro multi-touch pad.
