We want to thank all our visitors at Digital Content Expo 2010 last week.

LM3LABS demonstrated 2 solutions out from their technologies:

The Touchless Ironman Experiences

Thousands of visitors could experience the touchless interaction with digital content displayed on a semi-rounded and transparent interface similar to what can be seen in the Iron Man movie. LM3LABS’ AirStrike was tracking fingers, hands and gestures very accurately in mid-air.

The experience was magic.

Interactive Go: hi-precision finger tracking on a piece of wood

LM3LABS’ vision is aimed at hiding technology to make it invisible to users. We wanted to demonstrate the association of digital technology to analog environment and we have selected our finger tracking technology in association to a traditional Japanese Go game (also called Go-ban). A Go-ban is a very beautiful piece of wood made in a single piece. We projected the game from the top, integrating the projector and camera into a (our designer Edern’s) hand-made traditional Japanese lamp.

The technologie is called Movaction and it tracks fingers extremities, hand and gestures very accurately. The tracking is made from top ad it is completely impossible to embed any sensors into the 20cm thick piece of wood.
Players could point at the position they want and “stones” appeared in a magic way.

After a few stones, the game was accidentally broken and Japanese carps were swimming under the Go grid.

LM3LABS’ work had a great media coverage:
