This article briefly discusses origins of the graphical user interface (GUI), the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and the World Wide Web (Web). Using the principles and information set forth the author informs how HCI principles can be applied to reshape existing Web user interfaces into an all-around sensory experience. The development of a Perceptual User Interface (PUI) through which users can navigate the Web is the focus of this study. Preliminary data and a prototype of a Post-GUI Web Interface (PoGWI) will be presented.
