Kinetic user interface

Kinetic user interfaces[1] (KUIs) are an emerging type of user interfaces that allow users to interact with computing devices through the motion of objects and bodies.

Instances of KUI are, for instance, Tangible User Interface, motion-aware games such as Wii and Microsoft's Kinect,and other interactive projects.[2]

KUI is also related to a new interaction design pattern focused on activities[3] and to incidental interaction.[4]
