A press release from Crunchfish promises motion-sense technology for smartphones, tablets and PCs, similar to Microsoft’s massively popular Kinect. Brilliantly, all you need is a front-facing camera; the software does all the work, so you don’t need to fork out for additional hardware.
The technology will allow users to play Kinect-style games, and move junk around with hand movements, just like Tom "Best Actor Ever" Cruise in Minority Report. Anything that brings the common man closer to Tom Cruise if fine by me.
“Sure, now you do not have to clean your screen from fatty spots from your fingers. But the real advantage is 3D control. What the heck does that mean?” You took the words right out of my mouth, Crunchfish.
“Since the controller responds to your fingers’ position in real space and are not confined to a flat 2D screen anymore, the user can control graphical objects in 3 dimensions,” explains Crunchfish. Sweet.
A YouTube video posted by Crunchfish shows off a prototype of the technology. Sort of. But in any case, it’s absolutely worth watching just for the banging soundtrack. I’m not even sure if I’m being sarcastic.
