GestureTek's 24 foot Multi-Touch Wall helps create state of the art briefing center for United Technologies

 

United Technologies GestureTek worked with Inhance Digital to build a 24 foot multi touch wall for United Technologies Executive Briefing Center in Washington DC.

 

United Technology Corporation (UTC), creates technology for the aerospace and building industries with products that range from HVAC systems to jet engines. Inhance Digital was tasked with conveying the message that United Technologies make truly imaginative products, while maintaining the distinctive brand story of each individual company that UTC owns.


UTC's request was clear. They wanted a "Disneyland-like experience" for their visitors.


To facilitate this Inhance enlisted GestureTek to provide the giant interactive multi-touch mural featuring a 24 x 8 foot wall of interactivity exploring UTC in virtual 3D landscapes, from the city to the suburbs, via a refrigerator truck and a cruise ship, through airports, military bases and even outer space. The mural allows for ten people to have a simultaneously custom interactive experience.

 

Inhance Digital used GestureTek's Illuminate multi-touch system to create this gigantic multi-touch wall experience. Illuminate multi-touch systems are completely customisable to fit any size of wall, table or surface.  

 

You can view a video of the UTC Executive Briefing Center below: it's well worth the watch. Or if you would like information on a similar system for your business visit our website or email sales@gesturetek.com.

Relevent uses GestureTek to create Augmented Reality Experience for Disney's "Perry the Platy-bus Tour"

Disney Platybus GestureTek was called on by Relevent to create an augmented reality experience for the Disney show Phineas and Ferb's "Perry the Platy-bus On Tour". The tour celebrated the top-rated animated series and kicked-off the countdown to the Disney Channel Original Movie, "Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension."

The bus toured around America and allowed fans to meet the cast and play lots of games about the show as well as interact with the shows animated characters virtually and that's where GestureTek came in.  

Disney fans could join the mission to bring Perry back home and, via Augmented Reality, could virtually get in the action with Phineas, Ferb and other characters. GestureTek created a custom augmented reality experience that works via a video camera connected to a GestureTek computer system. 

You can watch a video of the Platy-bus augmented reality experience here.

IREX immersive full body video games get patients moving and engaged in rehabilitation therapy 
 

The Village at Marymount's new Parker Hannifin Therapy and Wellness Center is excited about the impact of their new GestureTek Health's Interactive Virtual Reality Exercise System IREX. IREX is an innovative video therapy system that helps patients with their rehabilitation.


Results have proven that patients who normally wouldn't look forward to their physical therapy tend to be more dedicated and enthusiastic about their recovery when they use the IREX system as it involves playing a video game with your body.

It's a computer-generated virtual reality therapy world that guides patients through interactive rehabilitation exercises, games and activities that target specific body parts. The performance is then measured and recorded to show improvement after each play. 

The system includes a camera, computer, display, and some form of "green screen" that put the patients in the middle of a scene.

The IREX system has completely revolutionised the physiotherapy world. With over 30 studies conducted it has been shown time and time again that the IREX system provides a type of therapy that can dramatically improve balance, strength, endurance and speed when compared to traditional therapy.

You can watch a video of the IREX system in operation at the Marymount Center here.

Bahrain Duty Free introduces interactive floor projection system

  

Bahrain GFX
GestureTek teamed up with Homerun Production, our dealer in Denmark, to introduce a new interactive floor projection system to Bahrain Duty Free. The system is the first of its kind in the Middle East and is designed to grab shoppers' attention in the departures area at Bahrain International Airport.

The GFX system reacts to each step a shopper makes as they walk around the floor, showing a colourful display of advertisements about the products and services on sale at BDF's shops. According to the company, the interactive floor projection system "really grabs and holds the customers' attention with its innovative element of providing interactivity".

Bahrain Duty Free Head of Human Resources Adel Reza said: "With the introduction of these unique devices which are the first of their kind in the region, the company aims to advance the element of fun and entertainment for the shoppers through the use of existing and exciting technology."

 

The project uses GestureTek's GroundFX system which can project dynamic multi-media images, special effects, games, advertisements and logos onto floors. These gesture-controlled displays, signs and surfaces make for show-stopping advertising and entertainment. More than 70 eye-catching applications and games come with GestureFX and content can also be customised to the user's need.

GestureTek's ScreenFX integrated with Christie MicroTiles at IDS  

  

IDS2012 Christie, a global visual technology company, incorporated GestureTek's ScreenFX system into a project that transformed the architectural/design, retail, and corporate branding display industries at Canada's largest contemporary design fair, the Interior Design Show (IDS), which took place at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto.


The multi-faceted entrance installation, "StripTease", featured the latest in projection technology and interactive capabilities supplied by GestureTek and a two-sided
Christie MicroTiles wall.

The projection element consists of 1,300 individual strips of felt that created a 52 foot by 19 foot "screen" with front-projection using two digital projectors. Two GestureTek ScreenFX systems created the interactive content and camera-enabled, gesture-recognition technology.

Visitors experienced a live video camera feed of themselves interacting with the content on the MicroTiles wall. It was the first installation of its kind at IDS that integrated visually dynamic content with interactively playful technologies.
