Toshiba AirSwing Interactive Hand gesture Mall displays

At the Embedded Systems Expo, Toshiba presented AirSwing. A user interface that can be operated via a camera built into a display through which it places a semitransparent image of the user within a superimposed menu allowing instant feedback to where the users are within the interface.

A significant feature of the AirSwing is that the image processing is handled with software which amazingly uses less than 4% of cpu resources while the equipment is running.

The system works by interpreting a combination of the users hand gestures and movements and since the interface is relatively simple and easy to, the displays are anticipated being installed in malls and shopping arcades.
