PointGrab’s sophisticated Hand Gesture Recognition software is established on exclusive and refined hand shape and motion recognition algorithms functioning mutually with an ordinary 2D camera. PointGrab’s original and patented technology offers many hand gesture recognition solutions for many different types of devices and applications. Point Grab’s hand gesture recognition software effectively and reliably detects hand motion from a distance of up to five meters. The software is made so that it can work as reliably in different lighting. It also detects people with any skin colour and using very little central processing unit of energy. The software works consistently with a cheap, non-colour webcam too. The complicated algorithms in the software recognize the positioning of the X, Y coordinates of the hand in order to support accurate cursor control. They also allow for detecting natural and intuitive hand gestures such as GRAB (closing of the hand) which supports all mouse functionalities including mouse left-click, double click, right-click and drag & drop. Also, the unique algorithms can simultaneously detect and track two hands, allowing for natural gestures such as zoom and rotate. The core technology underlying PointGrab’s hand gesture recognition software, allows adding and modifying gestures quickly and easily as compared to other softwares. The new PointGrab technology has a superior understanding of what a user is trying to do
