iPoint 3D at CeBIT

Fraunhofer has announced the iPoint 3D recognition device to be displayed at CeBIT. iPoint 3D lets users communicate with a 3D display using simple hand and finger gestures, and without having to wear special devices such as 3D glasses or data gloves. Modeled to be slightly larger than a keyboard, the device comes equipped with two built-in FireWire cameras that are used to monitor the person's hands. The iPoint 3D is designed for a wide variety of uses ranging from business to more casual video gaming.

When in use, the iPoint 3D can be suspended from the ceiling above the user, or integrated into a coffee table. Fraunhofer has yet to give a release date or price for the iPoint 3D.
