Somatic Digital announced today that it has gained a U.S. Government contract to provide NASA Goddard Flight Center with a Touch User Interface (TUI) platform also known as the TouchBook™.

The TUI is to the printed page what the Graphic User Interface (GUI) is to the computer screen. It is an open convergence technology that enables readers of normally printed materials to touch the page and retrieve digital content or launch communication applications on a computer.

Currently, the TUI can retrieve digital content and launch communication applications via Windows XP® or Mac OS X®. The functions that can be driven from a web page can also be conducted from a printed page.

According to Jason E. Barkeloo, President, Somatic Digital, “We are pleased to provide our technology to NASA. Their vision and commitment to providing printed and digital science content to everyone in a universally designed way makes them an ideal customer for the TUI technology.”

The TUI enables books to be customized to prescriptively meet the particular needs of the reader. Properly designed TUI-based TouchBooks™ should meet the requirements outlined in the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) and the inclusive learning requirements of laws such as the Individuals with Disabilities Act, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1979.

The terms of the award were not disclosed.

About Somatic Digital
Somatic Digital, LLC, is the developer of the Touch User Interface (TUI) technology as the TouchBook™ platform. The TUI technology connects paper directly to digital content that can reside on optical media, the Internet or hard drives. It enables a bridge over the digital divide because it eliminates barriers that previously prevented people from connecting to digital content.
