Interact With 3D Display Using Simple Gestures With iPoint 3D

iPoint 3D 

Researchers at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have presented a new innovation, iPoint 3D, that allows people to interact with a 3-D display through simple gestures. There is absolutely no need to touch it with a data glove or use 3D glasses.

The system features a recognition device, not much larger than a keyboard that can be suspended from the ceiling above the user or integrated in a coffee table. Its two built-in FireWire cameras detect hands and fingers movement in real time and transmit the information to a computer.

As the interaction is entirely contactless, the system appeals to video gamers and is ideal for scenarios where contact between the user and the system is not possible or not allowed, such as in an operating room, says Paul Chojecki, a research scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications.

iPoint 3D will be presented by the researchers at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany.
