Futuristic Interfaces based on Vision technology
The atracTable, recently presented by Sony and atracsys at the Vision show in Stuttgart, is the combination of a video-based movements tracking system, a computer, a beamer, and a screen.
When an object is placed on the screen, the tracking system recognizes it thanks to a visual tracking tag on the base of the product. At the same time, the tracking system detects the positions and movements of the users' fingers and the objects on the screen. All the information concerning the location of the product(s) and the different movements of the fingers are sent to the computer. The data is processed and sent back to the beamer. The processing is performed instantaneously. The real-time interaction is obtained by continuous detection of fingers and objects movements. The whole technology fits in the table and is invisible for customers.
