Touchless Touchscreen Technology

  1. 1. A seminar on Touchless Touchscreen Technology Presented by, Akshay vasava (MA073)
  2. 2. Table Content: • Abstract – TouchLess Tech • Touch Wall • TouchLess Touchscreen • TouchLess Monitor • Working • Minority Report • TouchLess SDK • TouchLess Demo • Advantages • Conclusion
  3. 3. Introduction: • Simple UI for touchless control, EllipticLabs 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. 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.
  5. 5. Touch wall:
  6. 6. 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. 7. Touch less Touch Screen: • The Touchless technology are being used in many forms in many different places.
  8. 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. 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.
  10. 10. • 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.

  11. 11. Touch-less -> Glimpse of gbui • 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.
  12. 12. 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.
  13. 13. • 2. Elliptic Labs EllipticLabs allows you to operate your computer without touching it with the Windows 8 Gesture Suite.
  14. 14. • 3. Airwriting Airwriting is a technology that allows you to write text messages or compose emails by writing in the air.
  15. 15. • 4. EyeSight eyeSight is a gesture technology which allows you to navigate through your devices by just pointing at it.
  16. 16. • 5. Mauz Mauz is a third party device that turns your iPhone into a trackpad or mouse.
  17. 17. • 6. PointGrab PointGrab is something similar to eyeSight, in that it enables users to navigate on their computer just by pointing at it.
  18. 18. • 7. Leap Motion LeapMotion is a motion sensor device that recognizes the user’s fingers with its infrared LEDs and cameras.
  19. 19. • 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.
  20. 20. • 9. Microsoft Kinect It detects and recognizes a user’s body movement and reproduces it within the video game that is being played.
  21. 21. 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.
  22. 22. 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!
  23. 23. Advantages: • Easier and satisfactory experience • Touchless Screen • Controlling objects • Gesturing and cursor positioning • No drivers required
  24. 24. 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!
