Ultraleap launches app to turn public touchscreens touchless
Ultraleap has launched an application called TouchFree which enables companies to retrofit existing kiosks and touchscreens, moving consumer interactions with public screens into mid-air. Using Ultraleap’s camera module and hand tracking software alongside the application, touchless gesture control can be added to any screen to create a hygienic alternative.
TouchFree provides touchscreen emulation by detecting a user’s hand in mid-air, converting it to an on-screen cursor, and supporting interaction methods that users are familiar with. TouchFree is designed to run invisibly on top of existing user interfaces without the need for modifications to existing interfaces and design, means downtime to retrofit is kept minimal, interactions remain familiar, and the system continues to be easy for consumers to use.
Ultraleap has collaborated with 20+ global kiosk makers, brands and agencies to perfect the application and make it real-world ready including Cortina Productions and Intuiface.
TouchFree is available to download for free here.
