iPoint 3D Lets You Control a 3D Display Using Only Hand Gestures

The creators of iPoint 3D claim their technology lets you walk up to a 3D display, and without having to wear any special eyewear, interact with the screen just by gesturing in the air.

According to Electronista, Fraunhofer plans to show off the technology at next month's CeBIT show, and say its uses could range from business purposes to gaming. iPoint 3D uses a device roughly the size of a keyboard and is placed either on the ceiling or on a table below the hands. There are two firewire cameras that monitor hand motions, which is then relayed back to the display.


There's no word on pricing, release, or what 3D displays this will work with, but I'm sure more details will surface in the coming weeks. [Electronista]
