Similar in some ways to Microsoft's Ribbon, the new Head-Up Display interface will eventually feature voice recognition as well.

Ubuntu Linux's New 'HUD' Interface Will Do Away with Menus


From PCWorld:
A new kind of interface is coming to Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” that will ultimately replace menus in Unity applications and recognize voice commands.

Called “HUD,” or “Head-Up Display,” the new interface is designed to recognize users' intent in interacting with the desktop rather than forcing them to navigate a rigid menu system to get things done.
