I’m meeting up with the nsquared people again on Monday, to take a look at some of their education applications. They’re an innovative software developer in Sydney who I first met in London when they were doing clever things with the Microsoft Surface. Now they have moved deeper into creating immersive experiences for users, across PC, Surface, phone and projection screens using Kinect.
When I saw their latest video of a concept for architects, it fired off the usual thoughts about might be possible if this was applied to learning scenarios. It is an amazing concept, and rightly has been receiving a good deal of interest this week.
They also offer a range of education applications, which are designed for touch interfaces on the Microsoft Surface or Windows slates, and take advantage of the fact that learners use them in completely different ways to normal laptops.
