Greetings,

Seattle IxDA is pleased to announce its June event: "Oh Brave NUI World"
(Our apologies to Mr. Huxley.)

"Oh Brave NUI World" will kick off at 7:00PM on June 26th, 2008 at the
Artefact studio, located near the edge of Belltown by Pike Place Market.
Gather around with local Designers, Researchers and Innovators as we
discuss the Natural User Interface, and its emergence within consumer
electronics, mobile devices, web and desktop applications and fully
immersive environments. This will be an engaging experience that will
stimulate and challenge our thinking around the future of interactive
systems. To help us kick off our discussion, we have invited three guest
speakers who have had experience designing NUI systems. The talk will be
complemented by light refreshments, drinks, and a chance to check out a
DIY "Surface" Demo. Join us!
