As user interface technology experts we remain very excited about the ongoing development of the OMAP™ processor family from Texas Instruments. These scalable, low-power multi-core ARM® Cortex™ devices are already proving themselves in a variety of mobile consumer applications, but we think they’ve got lots to offer the non-consumer world too – not least when it comes to optimising the user experience in next-generation designs.
And it seems that TI is thinking the same way. Take, for example, what they call their Me-D™ experiences. Beyond the GUI display, these are interactions in which users are no longer limited to the physical confines of a mobile device, but rather set free by the ability to make any physical environment the centre of their mobile universe.
Me-D experiences fit into three dimensions:
- Touchless gesturing in the ‘natural’ dimension
- Stereoscopic 3D (S3D) in the ‘third’ dimension
- Interactive projection in the "projected" dimension
And as the company chose to unveil this concept at Mobile World Congress in 2011, we can’t wait to hear what they will be announcing at MWC 2012 next week in Barcelona.
