Motion Pad™ (Beta 2) revealed: no IR camera (KINECT), no additional hardware (Leap Motion), only your integrated webcam!

Nov 11, 2013

A technology using only your integrated webcam!

Motion Pad ™ is a software solution using your webcam as solely source to recognize your fingers.

Unlike current gesture recognition technologies, it requires no additional hardware. The accuracy of the Beta 2 version is 3 pixels, greater than current infrared solutions.

A technology designed for inside and outside light conditions!

Motion Pad ™ is not based on algorithms "skin color", it is totally free from any ambient light conditions. It works perfectly indoors or outdoors, and even through a window with anti-UV.
