3DiVi will present technology that combines the best features of MS Kinect and PS Move for gaming and smart home at Touch Gesture Motion 2012 Conference (Austin, TX).
The technology allows to detect an exact location of a motion controller or just any smartphone with inertial sensors in front of a depth sensor. In other words, it is the fusion of functionality of Microsoft Kinect and Sony PlayStation Move controllers. It works by matching the motion data from inertial sensors of a smartphone to motion data of user hands based on skeletal tracking. With the help of the technology the new kind of applications for hardcore gaming and smart home control can be created.
“There are certain advantages and disadvantages relating to control approach based on depth sensor (skeletal tracking) and motion remote control.” - says Dmitry Morozov, Business Development Director. - “Our technology is an ideal solution for applications that need the best of each approach. Imagine, being able to precisely control a sword in addition to your avatar in a game, or control a smart home appliance by simply pointing your iPhone at it.”
