Let's discuss innovation in the presentation of information and the means of interaction with systems that we use. With developments ranging from augmented reality to voice-controlled facilities (such as Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa) and numerous others, the ways in which we interface with devices and sytems continues to change substantially.

The choice of this topic was, at least partially, triggered by the recent (July 30th) discussion of Augmented Reality on #smchat (long standing friends of #innochat).
Their focus was on devices such Google Glass, Snap Spectacles and a possible device from Apple.

However, as well as consumer devices for visual presentation, there are a wide range of other forms of  interaction by voice, fingerprints, iris scans, and other means.

Also, as well as for personal applications, a variety of types of interaction have been used in professional areas for many years. Soldiers and military pilots use "head up" displays and helmet mounted systems of various types. Also surgeons and other professionals carrying out intricate procedures use devices for presentation and communication of information.


During #innochat on Twitter on Thursday August 10th 2017, lets discuss innovation in presentation of information and interaction with systems in a free-ranging (without prepared questions). This is likely to include the adoption of these kinds of innovations in specific fields of application and the diffusion of innovations from one field to another.
