Audio-Visual Navigation (“because clickin is so 90’s”)
Andreas Lutz’s new portfolio website uses what he calls “audio-visual navigation” and requires only a webcam, microphone, and browser to use. With a combination of voice commands for selection and hand movements for navigation, the website transforms your laptop into a different kind of user interface, one that doesn’t rely on a mouse and keyboard for interaction. It’s an interesting bridge between the newest kinds of tangible user interfaces and the consumer interfaces that we’re used to dealing with every day.
I’m skeptical as to how well it works, so I’d like to try the site out; however, I’m in the library right now, and other students tend to frown upon using voice activated software in quiet spaces. I could probably get away with the giant hand gestures, but I don’t think I should jeopardize my relationships with the neighboring thesis carrels just yet.
