NPointer from Neurotechnology Uses Hand Gestures to Control and Navigate Computer Programs Without a Mouse or Touchpad
Date:8/20/2012

VILNIUS, Lithuania, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification, object recognition and computer vision technologies, today announced the availability of NPointer, a new tool for computer control and navigation that uses simple hand gestures instead of a mouse or touch pad. The new program, which is available as a free download, requires no special hardware, just a standard webcam and the NPointer software.

NPointer allows the user to control standard Windows programs by enabling the user to scroll, click, double-click, drag and navigate around the computer screen using hand movements. NPointer is based on computer vision technology that turns the webcam into a controller when it is pointed at the hand. Easy-to-learn gestural controls map to the natural placement of the hand and fingers palm-down on a desk or hovering just above it, and the visual interface shows semi-transparent "buttons" and controls that temporarily layer over the computer screen. NPointer also enables disabled people to use head movements to control the computer.

"Today's release of NPointer is the first step toward gesture recognition that does not require special hardware," said Vaidas Didvalis, NPointer project leader. "We expect this technology will find many new fields of application and, based on user feedback, we will continue to improve it."

NPointer works with any standard, movable webcam and a PC or laptop computer with 1.6 GHz or better processor running the Windows XP or newer operating system. NPointer is available now for free download at: www.neurotechnology.com/npointer.html

NPointer is the first end-user computer control and navigation product from Neurotechnology, which also offers SentiSight SDK for the development of obj
