LM3LABS integrated AirStrike into a smart home project in Kyushu, Japan.

AirStrike 200, 2 meter long, is integrated into the ceiling and users can manage most of the home appliances with gestures on a 100″ holographic screen: air conditioning, lights, cooking appliance and audio-visual devices…

The design won a Good Design Award 2013.


Michelin Japan gets a new HQ, interactive entrance

December 5th, 2013 | Posted in Case Study, Finger Tracking, Showrooms, Ubiq'window, Ubiqwindow's Installations | No Comments »



Michelin Japan moved their HQ within Tokyo and seized the opportunity to tap LM3LABS for a new interactive entrance. The objective was to engage visitors, within 5mn, in a discovery of various Michelin activities (from airplane tires to gourmet guides to your car’s tires).

LM3LABS deployed a 60″ interactive screen based on Ubiq’window 150.

From a minimal content source (Michelin’s web site and a few images), LM3LABS created a Flash application which allows direct and intuitive access to Michelin key information.



Ichikawa Literature Museum Completion

July 8th, 2013 | Posted in Finger Tracking, Museum, Ubiq'window, Ubiqwindow's Installations | No Comments »

LM3LABS completed the installation of the Ichikawa Literature Museum.

+ The need

The City of Ichikawa, in the Chiba Prefecture, came to LM3LABS with the project to create an audio-visual centre at the Ichikawa Literature Museum in order to improve the visitors’ experience.

Curators initially thought about showing simple movies, playing in loop.

+ Our answer

Video movies are great but interactions are far better to involve visitors and to bring them into a discovery experience that they will remember.

LM3LABS proposed two large size interactive panels based on Ubiq’window 200 where people can navigate into writers’ histories and stories. Visitors do not need to touch the screens to interact with content. A swift gesture and the content respond immediately.

The museum is to open on July 20th in Ichikawa in the Chiba Prefecture. We will monitor the public reception of the new installation.

3D touchless interface for Tohoku University Sendai

December 28th, 2012 | Posted in 3D, Case Study, Finger Tracking, Hand tracking, Movies, Showrooms, Ubiq'window, Ubiqwindow's Installations | 1 Comment »

Sendai has made the headlines in 2011 as a victim of the major tsunami that stroke Japan’s North East seashore and the Daiichi nuclear power plant catastrophe.

As a result of this terrible event, Tohoku University is now focusing their research on alternative power generation solutions and they equipped with a complex solar system. As researchers, they need to communicate on the result of their work and they tapped on LM3LABS for creating a futuristic interface for presenting their research.

LM3LABS used holographic projection with Ubiq’window to create a very large interactive surface. The result is an amazing 3D feeling. Content can be navigated with hands without any contact with the surface which allows smooth and swift actions.

Ubiq’window can be bought online on LM3LABS shop.

We open a new site to present interactive solutions for Museums.

This site focuses on Computer Vision technologies: Gesture Tracking, Face Recognition, Passive and Active Interactivity, Augmented Reality,…

Touchless, computer vision-based technologies are well fit to museums as they are mass-proof, invisible and require no learning.

A reference site for curators of the 21st century !

Touchless Macao installation

December 29th, 2010 | Posted in Movies, Ubiq'window, Ubiqwindow's Installations | No Comments »

Here is a nice example of Ubiq’window installation deployed by Hong Kong-based TVS for a watch shop in Macao.

Ubiq’window allows touchless, invisible yet precise interaction with any content on large surface.

As touchless technology and gesture control are finally getting from limelight they deserve, it is good to remind that Ubiq’window is deployed in thousands of sites offering the best precision interactivity on the market.

Understanding LM3LABS’ interactivity portfolio

November 12th, 2010 | Posted in AirStrike, Augmented Reality, Body Tracking, Catchyoo, Catchyoo Interactive Table, Face Tracking, Finger Tracking, Image Tracking, LM3LABS, Moovaction, Slide Presentations, Ubiq'window | No Comments »

Over the last 7 years, LM3LABS has built a complete set of technologies and products all based on computer vision. They are software and electronics products as it is difficult to create high-quality CV products on software only.

We recently mapped those technologies for a better understanding of what product does what.

If all of them belong to the “gesture control” world, the best segmentation is made from 4 categories:

  • Finger tracking: precise finger tracking, it can be single touch or multi-touch (this latest not always being a plus). Finger tracking also encompasses hand tracking which comes, for LM3LABS products, as a gestures.
  • Body tracking: using one’s body as a pointing device. Body tracking can be associated to “passive” interactivity (users are engaged without their decision to be) or “active” interactivity like 3DFeel where “players” use their body to interact with content.
  • Face tracking: using user face as a pointing device. It can be mono user or multiple users. Face tracking is a “passive” interactivity tool for engaging user in an interactive relationship with digital content.
  • Image Tracking: Augmented Reality (AR) lets users use images (flyers, real products, t-shirts, faces,…) to interact with digital content. AR can be markerless or marker-based. Markerless technology has advantages but marker-based AR is easier for users to understand. (Please note here that Markerless AR is made in close collaboration with AR leader Total Immersion).

Most LM3LABS’ products are leader on their segment if not unique.
