CES Exhibitors Use GestureTek’s Gesture-Recognition Software to Give Their Booth a Futuristic Feel

Jan 07 2008


Intel and RepairTech booths will include GestureTek’s gesture-controlled interactive displays, immersive media solutions and gesture-enabled PC-based games.

CES 2008SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA – (January 7, 2008) – GestureTek® Inc. - world leader and patent-holder in camera-enabled gesture-controlled interfaces for interactive displays, presentation systems and entertainment systems -  today announced that two CES exhibitors, Intel and RepairTech, will use GestureTek’s patented, state-of-the art video gesture control technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on January 7th to 10th, 2008, in Las Vegas. 

“GestureTek technology is a showstopper.  Without a doubt, CES visitors will stop in their tracks when they see that they can control displays, manipulate special effects, play games and even immerse themselves in a 3-D virtual world – simply by moving their hands and body, ” said Bill Leckonby, CEO of GestureTek Inc.

At CES booth number 7153, Intel will be featuring GestureTek’s gesture-enabled games on Mobile Internet Devices based on Intel low power technologies.  GestureTek’s GestureXtreme® virtual world experience transports a person’s image into a computer-generated landscape, with no gear or equipment required.  Players can see themselves onscreen as they maneuver thrilling adventure simulations or interact with onscreen characters and objects in real-time.  Body motion controls the program, giving users an unencumbered full-body immersive experience

At CES booth number 8759, GestureTek and design marketing firm Ex Machina have designed the booth of the future for RepairTech, a warranty service provider.  RepairTech will showcase its offerings using GestureTek’s ScreenXtreme™ system with ActiveX plug-in on a giant 50” plasma screen. ScreenXtreme is an immersive, interactive digital signage solution that transforms any digital sign or advertising screen into an immersive, interactive experience for customers.

ScreenXtreme is a powerful tool for entertainment and brand promotion.  It magically captures a passer-by’s real-time image and allows the person to watch themselves on a screen of any size, as they transform an advertisement’s background, images and special effects.  Using a patented, camera-based technology that tracks the area in the vicinity of a display, Screen Xtreme lets people manipulate the graphics that surround them on the screen, simply by moving their hands and body.

Available with over 30 pre-programmed special effects, ScreenXtreme delivers effects that simulate swimming underwater, juggling objects or wiping away a hazy mist to clear the view. ActiveX controls enable any existing digital signage solution working on the Microsoft Windows Operating System to run Screen Xtreme immersive interactive software as a sub-window, within the overall solution.
