Leaving the touch screen technology behind, the iPoint 3D allows the users to merely move their hands in the air to perform tasks like switching on the light or turning off the stove.
This latest technology works with out the users having to wear the 3D glasses or gloves. The recognition device is not much larger than the keyboard and it can be easily suspended from the ceiling or installed on the coffee table.
"Its two built-in cameras detect hands and fingers in real time and transmit the information to a computer," said Paul Chojecki, a research scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich-Hertz-Institut, HHI, explaining the technology.
With an slight movement of hands in front of the device, the system responds without requiring any form of touch. The device includes two inexpensive FireWire cameras and a off-the shelf video cameras that are easy to install.
The iPoint 3D technology finds various applications like living room or office, or even in a hospital operating room, or as part of an interactive information system. It is also going to be a major hit with the video gamers. "Since the interaction is entirely contactless, the system is ideal for scenarios where contact between the user and the system is not possible or not allowed, such as in an operating room," said Chojecki.
However, the device can also be used as a means to control other devices or appliances. This is quite a handy technology, that enables you to turn off the stove while kneading dough, with out leaving any marks on the stove.
At the office an architect can examine a construction drawing from all angles by gesture control. The human fingers are the devices of the future and the iPoint will be presented at the at CeBIT, the trade fair for information and communication technologies, in Hanover from March 3-8.
