Touch and Gesture interaction is emerging as the preferred way to access and manipulate data sets. Hand-held consumer touch screens in phones and mp3/video players have led to demand for larger systems with similar capabilities. Mechdyne offers a range of touch and gesture technologies that can be integrated with immersive 3D environments, projected, and direct view displays.
Touch with a single finger to open a file. Touch and swipe with two or more fingers to expand an image or more. Involve single or multiple users. The possibilities for utilizing these interaction techniques are only beginning to scratch the surface. Mechdyne has enabled discovery in a wide range of industries with displays including:
Ranging from pressure sensitive to camera-based devices, wired or wireless, existing displays or new, we will work with you to develop the best solution for your application. Mechdyne can custom program a turn key touch display with a simple to use graphic interface that will invite and engage users. See examples of touch interaction at Sandia National Labs, the University of Iowa, Birmingham University, Iowa Hall of Pride, and CERDEC in our portfolio section.
Control objects and move them using simple hand and body gestures. Cameras monitor and track movement, and convert motion into on-screen action. Control multi-media content, access information, or manipulate objects simply and intuitively. Gesture control can be applied to display tables, large scale wall displays, and 3D immersive environments. Public spaces, trade events, and corporate and tourist centers are ideal locations for this easily accessible and usable technology. Mechdyne can provide a turn key installation designed and programmed for your applications.
Designed for immersive 3D environments, the Pinch Glove is a hybrid technology which offers a simple and intuitive implementation of hand gestures and touch to manipulate data. Control pads in each finger tip detect contact between two or more fingers. These touches can be programmed for a wide range of control and interactive functions such as grab, zoom in/out, rotate, and more. Combined with a motion tracking systems, objects can be grasped, moved, rotated, and more in stereoscopic 3D spaces. Developed by Mechdyne, the Pinch Glove was the original immersive environment touch and gesture interaction device.
