The QWERTY keyboard and the mouse have been the primary methods of interaction with computers for a long time. But there is a group at Microsoft seeking to make that a thing of the past. Enter the team at Microsoft Research.

Larry Larsen over at Microsoft’s Channel 9 has a great interview with Bill Buxton, one of the Principle Researchers at MSR and the author of Sketching User Interfaces. It talks about their work with what Microsoft has dubbed “Natural User Interface” and how the multi-touch technologies in products like the Apple iPhone and Windows 7 will eventually become a regular part of computing, as well as new technologies like those in the Xbox 360 Project Natal.
