[Work in Progress]
3D modeling has been revolutionized in recent years by the advent of computers. While computers have become much more affordable and accessible to the masses, computer modeling remains a complex task involving a steep learning curve and extensive training. We study to redefine the interface for computer modeling to make it more accessible to lay users.
This work is motivated to employ natural expression with fewest restrictions to free CAD users from the tedious command buttons and menu items.
We have explored both the hardware and software aspects of the interface, specifically, the use of intuitive speech commands and multitouch gestures on an inclined interactive surface.

The very initial touch based integration was done at Google SoC. Touch+Speech Multimodal fusion with SriG at HP Labs
