Last week, I had the privilege, to travel to New York to attend the Stevie Awards gala dinner, where our company Natural User Interface Technologies AB got honored with a Certificate of Finalist Recognition in the Annual International Business awards for our multi-touch software product Snowflake Suite, in the category Best New Product or Service of the Year - Media & Entertainment 2009.
The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business.
Honorees were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries.
Organizations all over the world are eligible to compete in The International Business Awards, and can enter in any of more than 40 categories from Multinational Company of the Year and Best New Product of the Year to Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year and Executive of the Year.
Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs selected International Stevie winners from among the Finalists, which were determined by volunteer judges around the world during two months of preliminary judging.
The Stevie Awards are considered by many as the Oscar Awards of international business, so we are very delighted with this mile stone that recognizes our hard effort to satisfy our clients and partners.
I’m very thankful for working with hard working and passionate colleagues, though I do want to emphasize the important role that our clients and partners have played in achieving this as well. Thanks to their great feedback to improve Snowflake and their trust to work with us, we have achieved this.
Snowflake Suite is a commercially available multi-touch software product that is available for different hardware technology platforms, like rear camera based solutions, Nextwindow, N-trig and others.

In this educational NUIversity® video by Natural User Interface Technologies AB, Snowflake Suite developer for the Adobe Flash platform, Ralph Das, explains the usage of Snowflake Suites Interactable Component, allowing Flash developers to easily make a Flash multi-touch demo application, with no line of code, simply by dragging and dropping components.
This video covers how to make a rotatable and scalable image. The beauty about this is, that we have developed a Flash mouse input simulator, so that there is no need for multi-touch hardware in order to develop your applications. Simply simulate multiple mouse inputs for multi-touch.
Also the Connection Component, discussed in the previous NUIversity® video is also used.
This project is still in alpha phase and a download will become available with the next release of Snowflake Suite 1.7 for the NextWindow platform and camera based multi-touch solutions.
One additional NUIversity® video covering a Toucharray and a novel highly fast communication between Snowflake and Flash, will be following.
