New Gesture Interface Takes Multi-touch Technology to the Next Level

Developed in a student dormitory, DisplAir is a new gesture interface that brings thin-air multi-touch technology to the next step. The technology uses cold fog as a screen to project images. This is combined with an infrared camera to capture the user’s hand movements as they manipulate the images.
There is a 0.2 second delay from your gesture to image motion, compared to competitor Microsoft Kinect’s 0.1 second lag.
You can do anything from swipe, slide and enlarge images like you do with tablet touch technology. DisplAir, unlike Kinect and commercial competitor Fog Screen, detects small finger movements instead of only large gestures.
