GestureTek showcases gesture-controlled entertainment and interactive display systems at the 2008 Nightclub and Bar Show.

GestureTek’s immersive and multi-touch technologies popular with tourism and hospitality venues.

SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA, February 22, 2008 – GestureTek Inc. – inventor and world leader in gesture-controlled interactive entertainment and visual display systems – announced today that it will exhibit its revolutionary immersive and multi-touch technologies at the 2008 Nightclub and Bar Show on February 24th to 27th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth 6125.

GestureTek’s one-of-a-kind multi-touch surface computing application will be a key attraction at the show.  This amazing technology allows multiple-users, using simultaneous touch commands, to play games, manipulate dynamic 3D multi-media content and create dazzling special effects.  More than 50 pre-programmed special effects and applications from the GestureFX® library are now available with GestureTek’s interactive surface systems.  People can control the applications using simple hand gestures, with no need for any special gear or equipment. GestureTek’s systems create interactive surfaces of any size on floors, walls, table tops and even bar counters.

ScreenXtreme™, GestureTek’s immersive interactive digital signage solution, will also be demonstrated at the Bar and Nightclub show.  ScreenXtreme uses sophisticated body tracking software and camera technology to track the area around a display and capture the images of people moving nearby.  People’s real-time video images are transported into the middle of an interactive game, visual display or advertisement, where they can watch themselves as they interact with onscreen characters and objects, manipulate advertising content, play games or control spectacular special effects. 

“Imagine stepping into a computer-generated landscape and controlling the content simply by moving your hands, feet or entire body. It’s a highly effective way for nightclubs, restaurants, hotels or casinos to engage and entertain patrons,” says Vincent John Vincent, President of GestureTek.

GestureTek’s nightclub and bar clients include Alice Fazooli’s, who installed a GestureFX interactive table on which diners can enjoy a virtual fishpond, ‘fingerpaint’ and  play games, and Jack Astors, who installed GestureTek’s interactive tables and a ScreenXtreme system that allows patrons to watch themselves play a game of virtual soccer.  Anheuser-Busch installed a GestureFX system as a promotional medium in CIRCA, Toronto’s popular new nightclub.  GestureTek’s systems are frequently used for advertising, in addition to entertainment.  Multiple independent studies cite the higher levels of brand retention achieved with these kinds of unique interactive displays. 

Millions of visitors have experienced the 3000-plus GestureTek installations all over the world in nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, retail locations and other public spaces. The company’s various solutions for point and control, responsive media, immersive gaming experiences and multi-touch surface computing allow people to 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 wear, hold or touch anything special.

Selected GestureTek technologies for bars, nightclubs, restaurants and hotels:

Illuminate Multi-Touch™ Tables & Displays:  Futuristic computing surfaces with no visible screens or hardware, used to navigate traditional multi-media or deliver multi-touch interactivity.
