Gesture Remote

(PresseBox) (Wessling, ) Today, IDENT Technology, LUNAR Europe and zinosign launched the Gesture Remote - the future concept of TV remote controls.

As we head into a new era where the lines between traditional television and webbased multimedia begin to blur, our relationships with our devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Accessing content beyond standard TV channels - from ondemand video to social networks - requires a higher level of interactivity and a whole new breed of remote control. The innovative Gesture Remote provides a simple and intelligent interface that can be used to navigate the wide array of content available on modern TVs. Gesture Remote transforms watching television into a magical, intuitive experience.

Brand new virtual features

The Gesture Remote offers a new way to interact threedimensional with your television. Using simple thumb gestures, users can now:

- Easily drag & drop or point & select content - thanks to our virtual mouse functionality
- Scroll, flick, rotate, or zoom in & out for volume control and channel selection, using Gesture Remote's virtual sliders

The technology behind Gesture Remote

Gesture Remote uses GestIC technology from IDENT Technology to detect and track hand, finger, or body movement. This makes it possible to control products without needing to touch a screen, trackpad, or keyboard. GestIC technology adds a completely new dimension to internet and multimedia user interfaces by allowing users to interact with their devices using only hand or finger gestures.

GestIC technology enables a revolutionary new user interface by offering threedimensional, contactfree position tracking and gesture recognition. It is unique in its ability to measure not only 3D position, but also the direction and velocity of movement in 3D space.

About

Gesture Remote is a joint development by three partnering companies: IDENT Technology AG delivered the underlying touchfree GestIC® technology used in Gesture Remote.
