GestureTek CTO to Highlight Potential for Gesture-Based Consumer Electronics Technologies at CES
Company Co-Founder Francis MacDougall to Serve on Panel Examining New CE User Interface Technologies
LAS VEGAS, NV Consumer Electronics Show CES- January 6, 2009 – GestureTek, the world leader in gesture control interfaces for interactive displays and devices, announced today that company CTO and co-founder Francis MacDougall will serve on a panel examining the potential for new sensor-based response technologies for consumer electronics user interface devices at the International Consumer Electronics Show.
The session, titled “The New User Interface: Who Needs Buttons and Dials?”, addresses the question of whether the growth in new remote controls and other user interface devices that respond to sound, voice and motion is a legitimate trend or a passing fad. Slated for 10:30-11:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 9 at the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall, the session will be moderated by Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3, and will feature four other panelists specializing in alternative control technologies.
“There’s no question that innovative gesture-based user interface technologies have opened up a world of possibilities, especially for media-based consumer electronics companies and their customers,” MacDougall said. “More than just a novelty, gesture control provides an incredible immersive experience that engages users, a process that is not only addicting, but also easier and more convenient to use. Our hands are always within reach, but that remote control? Not so much.”
MacDougall co-founded GestureTek in 1986 and drives the technology strategy for the company, leading the R&D and production teams, as well as all patenting and licensing activities. MacDougall developed and patented the company’s core single camera gesture control technologies and led the creation of the application development engine, tracking engines and numerous other capabilities that form the base of GestureTek’s product offerings. He is a specialist in real-time system design and has experience spanning low-level embedded architectures incorporating ASIC and DSP solutions, communication systems design, network audio/video transport, image processing and computer vision, as well as high-level implementations under consumer and commercial architectures. MacDougall is a creative force in technology and product development and excels at finding the rapid path to creating marketable solutions for next generation user requirements.
GestureTek will also unveil its new Software Development Kit (SDK) for game developers and original equipment manufacturers at the Consumer Electronics Show, slated for January 7-10 in Las Vegas. GestureTek’s new software recognizes motions and objects such as a user’s face. It works with standard webcams and requires no special hardware, allowing game and application developers to bring immersive, gesture-based interactivity to virtually any platform, including PCs, laptops, mobile phones and other devices.
