Introduction:

• Simple UI for touchless control, Elliptic Labs


Innovative technology

• This unique screen is made by TouchKo, White


Electronics Designs, and Groupe 3D.

• The screen resembles the Nintendo Wii without the


Wii Controller.
4

Touch wall:

• Touch Wall refers to the touch screen hardware setup


itself; the corresponding software to run Touch Wall,
which is built on a standard version of Vista, is called
Plex.

• Touch Wall consists of three infrared lasers that scan


a surface.

Touch wall:

Touchless UI:
• The basic idea described in the patent is that there
would be sensors arrayed around the perimeter of the
device capable of sensing finger movements in 3-D
space
7

Touch less Touch Screen:

• The Touchless technology are being used in many


forms in many different places.
8

TOUCH LESS MONITOR:


• The monitor, based on technology from TouchKo was
recently demonstrated by White Electronic Designs
and Tactyl Services at the CeBIT show.

• The technology detects motion in 3D and requires no


special worn-sensors for operation.
9

Working:
• The system is capable of detecting movements in 3-
dimensions without ever having to put your fingers
on the screen.
• Sensors are mounted around the screen that is being
used, by interacting in the line-of-sight of these
sensors the motion is detected and interpreted into
on-screen movements.
• The device is based on optical pattern recognition
using a solid state optical matrix sensor with a lens to
detect hand motions.

ContD…
• This sensor is then connected to a digital image
processor, which interprets the patterns of motion and
outputs the results as signals to control fixtures,
appliances, machinery, or any device controllable
through electrical signals.
• You just point at the screen (from as far as 5 feet
away), and you can manipulate objects in 3D.

Touch-less -> Glimpse of igbu


• We have seen the futuristic user interfaces of movies
like Minority Report and the Matrix Revolutions
where people wave their hand in 3 dimensions and
the computer understands what the user wants and
shifts and sorts data with precision.
• Microsoft’s XD Huang demonstrated how his
company sees the future of the GUI at ITEXPO.

9 Minority Report
Inspired Touchless Technology:
• 1. Tobii Rex:
Tobii Rex is an eye-tracking device from
Sweden which works with any computer running on
Windows 8. The device has a pair of infrared sensors
built in that will track the user’s eyes.
15

• 2. Elliptic Labs

Elliptic Labs allows you to operate your computer


without touching it with the Windows 8 Gesture
Suite.
16

• 3. Airwriting

Airwriting is a technology that allows you to


write text messages or compose emails by writing in
the air.
17

• 4. EyeSight

eyeSight is a gesture technology which allows


you to navigate through your devices by just pointing
at it.
18

• 5. Mauz

Mauz is a third party device that turns your iPhone


into a trackpad or mouse.
19

• 6. PointGrab

PointGrab is something similar to eyeSight, in that


it enables users to navigate on their computer just by
pointing at it.
20

• 7. Leap Motion

LeapMotion is a motion sensor device that


recognizes the user’s fingers with its infrared LEDs
and cameras.
21

• 8. Myoelectric Armband

Myoelectric armband or MYO armband is a


gadget that allows you to control your other bluetooth
enabled devices using your finger or your hands.
22

• 9. Microsoft Kinect

It detects and recognizes a user’s body movement


and reproduces it within the video game that is being
played.
23

Touch-less SDK:
• The Touchless SDK is an open source SDK for .NET
applications.
• It enables developers to create multi-touch based
applications using a webcam for input.
24

Touch-less demo:

• The demo was created using the Touch less SDK and
Windows Forms with C#.
• There are 4 fun demos:
▫ Snake - where you control a snake with a marker
▫ Defender - up to 4 player version of a pong-like game
▫ Map - where you can rotate, zoom, and move a map
using 2 markers
▫ Draw - the marker is used to guess what…. draw!
25

Advantages:

• Easier and satisfactory experience

• Touchless Screen

• Controlling objects

• Gesturing and cursor positioning

• No drivers required
26

Conclusion:

• Today’s thoughts are again around user interface.

• The Touch less touch screen user interface can be used


effectively in computers, cell phones, webcams and
laptops

• May be few years down the line, our body can be


transformed into a virtual mouse, virtual keyboard. Our
body may be turned in to an input device!
