Like many of us in the "NUI" community, Stuart was impressed by the video of Jeff Han's 2006 TED Talk, which demonstrated a variety of awesome multi-touch, multi-user applications on a high-resolution drafting table. Stuart saw the importance of natural user interfaces and interaction and became involved with the NUI Group, a "global research community focused on the open discovery of natural user interfaces".
Unlike traditional tech companies, Osmosis is a collaboration between a global network of engineers, designers, and developers who share the "NUI" vision. This collaboration enables the company to provide solutions for clients across a range of countries, cultures, and domains.
Below is a photo-gallery of some of the applications and systems developed by Osmosis:

Below are two videos that give a taste of what Osmosis is all about:

I can see where some of these applications would be great in K-12 educational settings. Just look at the joy on the faces of the kids in the Multi-Touch Everywhere video!
(Short video clips of the Osmosis applications in action can be found in the showcase page of the company's website.)
