SoftKinetic announced world’s smallest HD gesture recognition camera and releases a middleware for far and close interactions. A professional developer kit will be available in order to start to develop new generation gesture-based user interfaces and applications.
SoftKinect is one of the pioneer providers for 3D vision and gesture recognition systems. They announced the DepthSense 325 (DS325) sensing device which is a mini HD camera that senses in 3D (depth) and in HD standard 2D (color). The DS325 uses a time-of-flight (TOF) cmos sensing camera system to detect gestures in 3D space. This camera is able to operate from as close as 10cm and includes a high-resolution depth sensor with a wide vield of view, combined with 2 microphones.
