GestureTek showcases multi-touch surface computing, immersive media and portable hand tracking system for mouse control at 2007 IAAPA Expo

Ripley’s, Epcot Center, Vulcan Space Adventure the latest attractions to rely on GestureTek technology

ORLANDO – (Nov 12, 2007) – GestureTek Inc. – provider of gesture-controlled interactive multi-media displays and exhibits and immersive simulation systems for entertainment and ‘edutainment’ – will showcase its innovations in interactivity and immersive experiences at the 2007 IAAPA Expo (International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions) on November 13th to 16th at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. In 2005, GestureTek won the IAAPA award for ‘Best New Technology Applied to Amusements’.

Tens of millions of visitors have been mesmerized by the 1,000-plus GestureTek installations at Location-Based Entertainment facilities all over the world.  The company’s patented gesture-recognition technology allows people to entertain and educate themselves as they control and manipulate dynamic multi-media content, access information and enjoy interactive floor and wall experiences – using nothing but simple hand and body motions to control the display.  They can even become immersed in a computer-generated landscape, where they see themselves interacting with characters and objects in real time.  It’s a “Wii-like” virtual reality experience with no gear or equipment required.

Selected recent GestureTek installations for Location-Based Entertainment facilities:

Ripley’s Museums
(multiple installations) GestureTek’s immersive music application lets vistors watch themselves as they activate instruments and create their very own virtual symphony.

Other exciting installations include the A.T. Still University Museum, for whom GestureTek created a soothing, interactive ‘tranquility table’, and a virtual gaming experience called ‘Cell Warrior’ where users see themselves onscreen as  a white blood cell on a quest to fight disease-causing bacteria; and Wonderworks, an Orlando attraction that features several of GestureTek’s interactive visual display systems and virtual gaming systems.
