Ultraleap launches next-gen camera
January 13, 2022 - Ultraleap, the world leader in hand tracking and mid-air haptics technologies, today launches their 3Di camera ahead of NRF Retail’s Big Show in New York. Designed specifically for Out-of-Home (OOH) and retail use cases, this camera complements Ultraleap’s TouchFree solution and enables easy integration for both retrofits and new kiosk designs.
Ultraleap’s TouchFree solution now comprises the new 3Di camera and the award winning TouchFree application, all powered by Ultraleap’s best-in-class fifth generation hand tracking software, Gemini.
Features of the Ultraleap 3Di camera:
- Wide field of view (FOV) supports landscape screens up to 42”
- Ultraleap 3Di’s increased range allows interaction with portrait screens up to 32”
- Faster initialization means touchless screens are accessible to all and more intuitive
- High frame rate (90fps) means Ultraleap can power a full range of creative content and development
- Fully enclosed design provides ingress protection against the challenging environments typical of the industry
Saurabh Gupta, Product Director for OOH, said: “Using our knowledge of the market and our experience with partners, we’ve created an OOH-specific camera which makes the adoption and integration of touchless technology easy.”
Ultraleap’s TouchFree application was launched in October 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Ultraleap research showed that consumers in the UK (71%) and the US (74%) expected to interact with touchless technologies, such as gesture interfaces, in the future. In restaurants, would-be diners on both sides of the Atlantic said they would prefer touchless gesture ordering over other options like over the counter or mobile app.
Since then, the TouchFree solution has gone on to win three international awards and has been integrated by companies like Cortina, SimplyNuc, Intuiface and imageHOLDERS. Companies like Pepsi have also used Ultraleap’s technology to turn their quick-serve restaurant kiosks touchless.
