No Touching: LCD Screen Uses Hand Gesture Control
A next generation technology doesn't require multi-touch to control applications on screen.
Evoluce, a German company pioneering display technology, has developed Evoluce ONE, a 47-inch Multi-touch HD LCD Screen with gesture recognition. That means, users can control multi-touch applications through gestures made right above the screen, without touching it. Hand gestures such as mid-air scrolling, rotating, stretching, shrinking, or pivoting motions are immediately registered and translated into screen actions such as pinch and zoom, screen transition or application dismissal. At the heart of multi-touch and gesture recognition is Evoluce’s Integrated Through Screen Optics sensing technology that recognizes an unlimited number of simultaneous screen inputs and hand gestures.
The company says that their technology would be useful in the fields of business intelligence, information visualization and medical imaging.
