News Release


GestureTek's Innovations in Touch-Free Display Interactivity and Gesture-Controlled Immersive Experiences Grows in Popularity with Science Centers and Technology Museums.

Oct 13 2007


New ScreenXtreme immersive display solution, compact AirPoint hand-tracking unit and Illuminate display to be showcased at ASTC Conference in Los Angeles

TORONTO, ON – (October 13, 2007) -- GestureTek Inc. - provider of intelligent, gesture-controlled interactive multi-media displays, presentations solutions and immersive ‘edutainment’ and simulation systems - will showcase its revolutionary innovations in interactivity and immersive experiences at the Annual Conference for the Association of Science-Technology Centers, in Los Angeles on October 14 and 15, 2007.

Millions of visitors have experienced the 1,000-plus GestureTek installations at Science Centers and museums all over the world.  The company’s gesture-recognition technology allows people to educate and entertain themselves as they control and interact with dynamic multi-media content; access information within interactive displays; and even immerse themselves in a 3-D virtual world – without ever having to touch anything.

GestureTek’s patented video-gesture-control systems power a wide variety of solutions in the areas of point and control technology, responsive media, immersive experiences and surface computing.   The technology is often used as a centerpoint for exhibits and interactive displays.  Recent Science Center installations that feature GestureTek’s immersive, interactive or illuminate display technologies include the Catawba Science Center, National Science Centers of India, Gulf Coast Exploreum, Still Museum and Sioux Falls Zoo.

“Each GestureTek product meets a different need for Science Center visitors, yet each serves to deliver a more engaging and memorable visitor experience, create more enjoyable interactive displays and exhibits - and ultimately boost the number of repeat visitors and new visitors through word-of-mouth,” says Vincent John Vincent, President and Co-Founder of GestureTek.

GestureTek’s new and proven technologies for Science Centers:

AirPoint™ System NEW
– a portable hand tracking unit to control any size display from any distance with hand gestures.
[more]


Illuminate Multi-Touch™ Displays and Tables NEW
- clear, floating surfaces, with no screens or hardware to be seen, used to navigate traditional multi-media or deliver multi-touch interactivity. The effect is magical as the display reacts to every point of your finger and wave of your hand.
[more]


ScreenXtreme™ ENHANCED
- a digital display solution that takes ‘edutainment’ to a new level of interactivity, projecting a user’s image into a screen, where they can see themselves manipulating images and special effects.
[more]

GestureXtreme™
- an immersive experience that projects a user’s real-time full-body image into a computer-generated game, where they see themselves interacting with characters and objects.  It’s often voted the most popular exhibit at Science Centers.
[more]

GestPoint™
- a rich “point-to-click” computer interface to convert hand gestures into direct mouse control for interactive displays, exhibits, signage and public information systems.
[more]


Gesture FX™
- an eye-catching visual display system that intelligently responds to body motion, projecting dynamic multi-media content onto any floor, wall, table, bar or counter
