Rich User Experience (RUE) is a complex yet very exciting field which requires the precision
of a software engineer, the analytics of a computer scientist, the heuristics of a cognitive
behaviorist, and the creativity of an artist.
RUE combines function & form, substance & style, art & science, tangible & intangible, and
quantitative & qualitative.
RUE invokes the wow! factor. It ignites emotions in users by first impressing them and then
making them loyal, addicted, and contagious.
RUE goes beyond the aesthetics of the fancy Flash applications of the yesteryears.
RUE goes beyond the interactivity and portability of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) which
bridged the gap between desktop applications and web applications.
RUE goes beyond the conventional point & click interface by incorporating a gesture interface
and speech recognition making the user experience truly immersive.

Luristic offers products that help companies develop applications or websites with Rich
User Experiences (RUE) that lure, engage, convert, and retain their users. Our products
are meant to complement some of the most popular Rich Interactive Applications (RIA)
platforms such as Adobe AIR, Adobe Flex, and Microsoft Silverlight.
The basic philosophy behind our products is to offer the ideal user experience by merging
the best practices of all three words: desktop, web, and mobile computing. The main
objective behind our products is to diffuse the usage of RIA in the mainstream instead of
being restricted to niches.
All of our products are based on open industry standards which protect your Information
Technology (IT) investments, reduce the learning curve, increase productivity, reduce
maintenance, and thus reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Currently, our products are delivered along with our services which allow us to customize
them based on the needs of each customer. Eventually, those products will be available
for purchase as separate packages and will incorporate all the necessary customization The Lure suite
