Innovation

Natural user interface is a user interface that is effectively invisible, and remains invisible as the user continuously learns increasingly complex interactions. The word “natural” is used because most computer interfaces use artificial control devices whose operation has to be learned. Examples include touch and multitouch interactions on today’s mobile phones and tablets, but also touch interfaces invisibly integrated into the textiles furnitures. — Wikipedia
