Features finger-tracking

Last year we reported on an early Minority Report-style hack for Kinect, and the idea persists as Evoluce recently presented its own take on the interface at the RTT Excite conference.

The hack uses finger-tracking to manipulate icons, images and videos, lending itself to desktop computing as well as preventing murders yet to happen with the help of three psychically-gifted humans kept in isolation. That's pretty versatile.

The Evoluce blog has more details, as does the video below.

Two things. First; that looks crazy cool. I see the use of the fingers, the need for the TWO fingers to move vs. manipulate... great application and it appears to be real. Second; Where was there an Xbox or a Kinect in that video? Was that a PC version of Kinect that's yet to be confirmed?

I can't see a sensor in the video either, but the site definitely states this is for Kinect. Perhaps it was just out of shot?

Reading the description on one of their vids it says the 3d sensor is integrated into the tv so I guess a dismantled kinect. Clever stuff though and assuming the kinect hasn't been modified proof it could be a lot more sensitive than we've seen ( I think some of their other vids show this off better than the car one there.)

It's not a kinect. It's a I-Voluce LCD with 3D depth-sensing, sensor integrated into the display.
