Kinect

Like everybody else – we’r thrilled about the cheap Kinect sensor. The web is currently overflowing with examples of Kinects hacks; from bi-ped robot control to performing SLAM.
We will publish some of our experiments with the sensor further on.

Natural User Interfaces (NUI)

In this video, we show some parts of our NUI demonstration and presentation software on a multitouch enabled table.
Our table provides a 32″ screen at 1920 x 1080 pixels and combined with NUI support software we support e.g. operators in collaboration and C² tasks.
