For its bicentenary celebration, Perrier-Jouet, the famous French champagne brand, tapped LM3LABS for two interactive and touchless books similar to what was done for Dior in Singapore.

The books used AirStrike to track hands and gestures in mid-air and let users turn pages or click on elements on pages.

The books presented Perrier-Jouet history since 1811, the Emile Galle period and its 2011 legacy with so talented artist Daniel Ashram.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New gestures for AirStrike and Ubiq’window

AirStrike and Ubiq’window have been enhanced with a new set of touchless gestures and actions.

Those gestures are recognized motions made in the air, on AirStrike, or at proximity of  the surface, for Ubiq’window. They can be associated to a series of actions understood by the applications.

The new set is available for free to Ubiq’window and AirStrike customers as part of LM3LABS’ lifelong support policy.

This gesture set paves the way to the soon-to-be-announced “4th dimension”, the contextual gesture adaptation to environment, an ultimate layer of intelligence in touchless and multi-touch interaction.

Revolution on the booth

We illustrate a simple solution to deploy for events and exhibitions.

AirStrike sensor is seamlessly installed inside the booth itself and only a narrow cleft allows the “eye contact” between the stereo vision cameras and the pointing fingers.

This installation lets visitors interact with a distant screen by simply pointing in the air toward the screen.
Exhibitors can use larger, higher quality screens which will be more visible to crowds, and will remain unharmed from them.
Despite the “invisible technology”, the touchless interaction is highly attractive by itself.

AirStrike’s precision allows virtually any type of content from picture browsing to hyperlink clicks, from web sites to 3D object handling.

This configuration is so easy to deploy that it can also fit museums, digital signage or retail shops.

Touchless interactivity is the next frontier

Despite the buzz about multi-touch, this technology evolution is not a challenge and it should have grown earlier if legacy OS editors, as well as input device manufacturers, had got more vision.

Now, we cannot really blame them, multi-touch makes sense with multi-media content only. And we are just at the dawn of the multi-media era.

The real frontier in today’s interactivity is touchless interactivity. It is the real challenge as it requires a perfect control of changing environment, precision optoelectronics, 3D algorithms.

We re-worked the presentation about Ubiq’window, today’s only real mass production tool for touchless interactivity.

Samsung launch their iPhone killer, the Omnia SGH i900, with Ubiq’window touchless technology.

Samsung deployed interactive boothes where people can experiment the amazing interface of their phone.

Only Ubiq’window can let people experiment what it is like to use such a next gen interface: dragging icones to launch applications, intuitive keyboard, smart OK, …

The interactive booth also let user “click” buttons outside the phone screen, to get fast access to Omnia’s features like: motion sensor, optical joystick, or 5 mega pixel camera.

And people are queuing to experience this.

As touch (…and soon touchless) interfaces are to invade our daily product, Ubiq’window is a unique solution to let customers experiment in large size.

The project was driven by LM3LABS’ distributor iM3 Asia in Singapore.

Embedding the Digital World into Real Life: a different interaction

At LM3LABS we do not believe much in cramming the real life into the small PC window. Recreating an all virtualized world.

We believe more in growing the digital world into the real life. This requires new types of display, like real size holography technologies, but also, and more importantly, different interaction methods. No more mice, trackpads,  only free-air interactivity can accomodate this vision.

Call your virtual assistant in a gesture. She is here, right in front of you like a real person, alive.

AirStrike lets users use their finger in the air to interact with holograms.

Holograms can be used as receptionists, presenters, augmented reality objects, virtual meeting and one day visualizing your Facebook friends right in the middle of your living room, real size !

How Street Signage will look like

Some early Ubiq’window interface works with SGI Japan.

An illustration of what will be common as public interactive signage in a few years: city shops browsing, satellite-rendered city map navigation, web browsing, dynamic newspaper reading, education and discovery. Updated in real time, anywhere, for anyone who can use his hands.

Just like for web with technologies, people will want to "grab" what they are interested in and screens will have to be… Ubiquitous. Here we are. Some kind of Ubiquitous window.

Ubiquity of dynamic signage means offering people in the street the opportunity to grab all the information they need from a single interface and to find this same content on all interfaces.

Now, we agree that this interface could be a mobile phone screen. Let’s rephrase this last sentence, it will ALSO the mobile phone screen, and public interactive signage, and mobile phone, and interactive digital signage,… Do you get it? Both!

Because there is a famous law for this: the Gabor Law. And it says that "Everything that is possible will be done, always".

Now, there are limited chances that interactive plasma screens are deployed everywhere despite some experiences. The only solution is a street-proof solution which resists the rain, the sun, vandalism, 1000s of people per day. This solution is called Ubiq’window.
