Why use a 2-D cursor in a 3-D world? Computer cursors are going 3-D!
Researchers at the University of Montreal have developed techniques that enable computer cursors to interact in 3-D in single or multiuser, local or remote collaboration scenarios. (2015-08-09)

'Audioclouds' that will help us compute more safely on the move
New research by UK scientists that enables people to interact safely with mobile computers while walking, running or driving, could help to prevent users from putting themselves in danger. (2005-04-12)

When using gestures, rules of grammar remain the same
The mind apparently has a consistent way of ordering an event that defies the order in which subjects, verbs and objects typically appear in languages. Although speakers of different languages describe events using the word orders prescribed by their language, when the same speakers are asked to (2008-06-30)

Angry faces: Research suggests link between facial structure and aggression
Angry words and gestures are not the only way to get a sense of how temperamental a person is. According to new findings in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, a quick glance at someone's facial structure may be enough for us to predict their tendency towards aggression.

Project focuses on physical stresses caused by multi-touch electronic devices
The evolution of computer systems has freed us from keyboards and now is focusing on multi-touch systems, those finger flicking, intuitive and easy to learn computer manipulations that speed the use of any electronic device from cell phones to iPads. But little is known about the long-term stresses on our bodies through the use of these systems. (2010-06-07)

Dogs' behavior could help to design social robots
Designers of social robots, take note. Bring your dog to the lab next time you test a prototype, and watch how your pet interacts with it. You might just learn a thing or two that could help you fine-tune future designs. A study, published in Springer's journal Animal Cognition, found out that man's best friend reacts sociably to robots that behave socially towards them, even if the devices look nothing like a human.

Avatars as communicators of emotions
Current interactive systems enable users to communicate with computers in many ways, but not taking into account emotional communication. A Ph.D. thesis presented at the University of the Basque Country puts forward the use of avatars or virtual Internet personages as an efficient form of non-verbal communication, principally focusing on emotional aspects.

Map data goes live with voice, gesture-based computer system
Emergency management teams, faced with an approaching hurricane, can access GIS map data through voice and gestures for real-time decision making on issues ranging from protecting hazardous materials sites to evacuating assisted-living facilities by using a computer system developed by Penn State researchers. (2002-11-08)

Coming to grips with robot learning
A 'living' artificial hand that learns through imitation has been developed, enhancing human-machine communication and paving the way for novel prosthetic aides. (2005-09-08)
