Description

Softkinetic is the leading provider of natural interfaces that transform the way people interact with the digital world.

They enable fully immersive, transparent and intuitive user experiences by providing a 3D real-time gesture recognition middleware to Interactive Digital Entertainment, Consumer Electronics, Industrial Applications and Fitness Equipment manufacturers.

Softkinetic operates with a single depth sensing camera, requires no marker (no gamepad, no wiimote, no special gloves or clothing, no headset - nothing), and works under all lighting conditions and scene settings (at home, in a fitness center, an amusement park, a classroom, a game cafe, an industrial simulation room - anywhere.)

    interesting. once tech like this gets perfected, it could really open up the video game world.

    Nice demos, but wasn't the vision cam supposed to give us the same kinds of games?  Nothing much happened there.  I can't help but wonder if this is just Microsoft's attempt to capitalize on greater motion-based gameplay like the Wii.  Didn't Bill Gates say that motion based gameplay wasn't mainstream yet?  I know he's no longer the big cheese there, but the company seems to have contradicted itself within the past few years.


    Anyway...this was an enjoyable segment.  Only next time I want to see more dancing...and bird noises from you.

    Nice demo, but the link you have to Softkinetic is to .com rather than .net and doesn't work.
