Touchless – Webcam Motion Sense SDK (Free)

October 15, 2008

The other day Michael Gannotti made a post about a very interesting SDK that popped up that helps enable developers create ‘touchless’ applications using webcameras.

Check out this short video clip here: http://communityclips.officelabs.com/Video.aspx?videoId=a89a217b-fc38-4a6c-87f8-ab59a2028391

Or try it out by downloading the demo here: http://www.codeplex.com/touchless/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx

I remember a plethora of applications like this that used to exist, but it was really hard to find a good SDK to help you get started or give you an area in the community to share ideas, and now it looks like things are moving in a good way. Especially as the cost of touch screen technology and multi touch technology is still far more expensive than a simple camera 🙂

It’s very cool stuff and I highly recommend checking it out: http://www.codeplex.com/touchless

Looking forward to the future,
