CSU's Natural User Interaction Lab

About NUILab

NUILab, (Formerly known as OpenHID), founded in January 2015, is dedicated to the research and development of 3D User Interfaces including selection, manipulation and navigation, Gesture User Interfaces including recognition and elicitation, Multi-Modal Interaction, and Virtual & Augmented Reality, among other research interest we have.

In general, we concentrate in the research of multi-modal interaction (gesture-centric) and how those gestures with other modalities may improve the user’s interaction. In addition, we have started looking at multi-modal interaction for collaborative environments. We strive to advance Human-Centered Computing state-of-the-art.

NUILab was originally founded at Florida International University (with the initial help of FIU’s High Performance Database Research Center) and now resides in its new home at Colorado State University in the Computer Science Department. The lab founder and director is Francisco R. Ortega, Ph.D. NUILab is part of a larger group, CSU’s Communicating with Computers (CWC).
