[Unconference Session] Gesture Interfaces: The Next Frontier for News?

Pitch by Dan Pacheco

First there were PCs, then mobile devices. What’s next? New advances in gesture-based interfaces use YOUR BODY as the primary interface to create and explore media and journalism.

See how educators and some news organizations are using the Leap Motion to create “air-enabled” information experiences and learn about experiments at Syracuse University to use depth cameras to allow people to navigate through information using the entire body for navigation.
