From Germany, pmdtec’s brings us CamBoard Pico, the next-generation of gesture-based interfaces with our computers.

The video below shows the system components and what the software is capable of.

The detection of hand gestures performed at a comfortable distance from the computer is impressive, seemingly accurately and it appears, very natural.  Individual finger detection and the ability to use the CamBoard Pico tech to accomplish simple, practical things like switching between open apps. The CamBoard pico can be used from a standard typing position by raising a finger while typing, making it something well beyond a novelty benefit.
