spatial computing

The interaction between humans and real-world objects. Spatial computing may refer to head and hand movements that direct computing devices. In the future, spatial computing may deal more with digitizing the real world in order to accommodate people moving in their environment; for example, by opening doors, turning on lights and adjusting room temperature.
