Hrvoje Benko is researcher in Natural Interaction Research group at Microsoft Research. His research is on novel surface computing technologies and their impact on human-computer interaction. Prior to working at Microsoft, Hrvoje received PhD at Columbia University, working on augmented reality projects that combine immersive experiences with interactive tabletops.

His projects explore the space where the flat digital world of surface computing meets the curved, physical, 3D space we live in. His current research interests include:

-augmented reality
-new input form factors
-multi-touch and freehand gestural input

In 2010, he has worked with a group at Microsoft Hardware to turn one of his research projects into a product. His team created Microsoft Touch Mouse which enables the user to use touch gestures on top of the mouse to control their Windows experience.
