Ultraleap Presents Modernization of Contactless Gesture Recognition for Kiosks | Coping with COVID-19
Ultraleap showcased its TouchFree app to enable businesses to modernize existing kiosks and touchscreens, according to a press release. Using Ultraleap’s camera module and hand tracking software with the app, touchless gesture control can be added to any screen to create a hygienic alternative.
TouchFree provides touchscreen emulation by sensing a user’s hand in the air, converting it to an on-screen cursor, and supporting methods of interaction with which users are familiar. TouchFree is designed to work invisibly over existing user interfaces without the need to modify existing interfaces and design, meaning downtime for upgrading is minimized, interactions remain familiar and the system continues to be easy for consumers to use.
According to recent research from Ultraleap, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, 80% of people now believe public touchscreens are unhygienic and locations need to adapt.
“Our recent research showed that only 50% of consumers were likely to use touch screens again,” Steve Cliffee, CEO of Ultraleap, said in the press release. “TouchFree is the perfect app for modernizing existing touchscreen kiosks for businesses looking to keep users coming back, maximize user interaction, and ensure customers feel safe.”
Ultraleap has worked with more than 20 kiosk manufacturers, brands and agencies around the world to make the app ready for the real world, including Cortina Productions and Intuiface.
