Our world-class user experience (UX) team is constantly looking for new and exciting ways to interact with the digital world through 3D vision, gesture control, and context awareness. They work at the leading edge of an evolving technology to create engaging and immersive experiences. They’re also keen to inspire developers to do the same, with practical demonstrations of all the amazing capabilities of depth technology. Whenever we think we’ve got something cool to share with you, you’ll find it here.
Depth and gesture recognition kit for VR. This kit enables you to naturally interact with objects in VR using your actual hands. It’s intuitive and provides a sense of spatial awareness for your position in VR.If you have an Oculus Rift DK1 or DK2 and access to a 3D printer, you can easily start building your own demos with the items below:

Magic Shadow Theater. Chinese shadows are fantastic, even more so when they are digitally enhanced. Our computer vision master geek got inspired by the wonderful “Shadow Monsters” from interaction designer Philip Worthington. Using a 3D camera, he originally created Magic Shadow Theater to impress his son. Now it’s your turn to share it with family and friends.
Add 3D interaction to your app. Antoine Rennuit, Technical Product Owner at SoftKinetic, made this bridge in his spare time to make it easy for people who create, make or adapt things to play around with 3D cameras. This neat piece of software is free to download, easy to set up and enables you to create meaningful user experiences using natural hand gestures. Get it NOW.
Full-body gesture recognition gaming action. What happens when you combine a DepthSense camera with the NVIDIA Shield? “An amazing, console-like gesture experience” according to NVIDIA. Watch the video and download iisu for Android.
Control almost anything with full-body or hand gestures. Keyboard, mouse or joystick are no longer required to control applications (including your Arduino!). You can easily control them with natural full-body or hand gestures. This can be done using Device Emulator, a neat open source piece of software. Get it NOW.
Hand controlled puppets. Turn your old socks into puppets using a 3D camera. Our puppet “Mr Sock” is fun to make and does not require any programming. See Mr Sock in action and build your own.
