When David Brown comes to town you know you’re in for a treat. He is a recognized leader in Surface application design and development, going back to the early days of Microsoft Surface 1.0. His latest project “NUIverse,” a whimsical play on words inviting people to explore the universe through natural user interface (NUI), is an amazing example of the kind of applications that can only be fully realized on the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface.
Last month David shared his time with us to demonstrate his NUIverse project, updated for the Microsoft Surface 2.0 platform. It’s hard to convey in a blog video just how visually stunning this application looks, but even more amazing is how easy he makes it to control the complexity of the Solar System and night sky. Everytime we check-in with David the NUIverse gains new features and interaction refinements — far too many to show at once. This application is a must have for any outer space enthusiast.
Be sure to check out our video deep dive into the NUIverse on the Surface YouTube Channel. To learn more about NUIverse, and David Brown’s past Surface projects, please checkout his blog at http://drdave.co.uk/blog
