SoftKinetic hoping to bring gesture control to TVs


Belgian company SoftKinetic have presented their take on Microsoft’s Kinect technology at this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC). Their sensor, called ‘DepthSense’, is being aimed predominately at laptops and ARM-powered television sets.

The DepthSense uses infrared time-of-flight technology, allowing users to make use of the device in the dark. This will also permit use in a more confined area than the Kinect is capable of. The sensor can reportedly discern individual fingers accurately at a range of between 1.5 and 4.5 meters.

A wider range of gesture-based products may be just around the corner.
