QtWS15- Rising Trends in 3D in user interfaces, Sami Makkonen, The Qt Company
Qt World Summit 2015, OCTOBER 5-7, BERLIN, GERMANY
Rising Trends in 3D in user interfaces:
For the past 20 years, Qt has delivered all the tools and libraries for creating the best possible user experience for your end users, from classic desktop look-and-feel to fluent, modern touch-based user interfaces. Today, the future of UIs is pointing towards 3D.
We are seeing unprecedented development in Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality both in display technologies and 3D depth sensing of the surrounding environment. Combining these enables immersive user experiences as we have already seen in products like Microsoft HoloLens and Oculus Rift. Also the user interaction will change as gesture interaction with 3D elements is providing a more natural way of interacting with 3D objects.
This talk highlights the use cases we see now and in the future around 3D and introduces how Qt is meeting the needs of the modern 3D user interfaces. The focus of the talk is more on the use of 3D instead of the underlying technology and code.
