Swiss company Atracsys sold its tech knowhow to Sony and the company is today informing the world that its atracTable is ready for mass production and commercialization this June.
The system is a dual camera-based system that tracks and analyzes body movements in three dimensions, in real-time. Initially designed for use with a computer in a sterile operating theater, the interface not only notices subtle changes in the position of your body, arm, hand, or finger position, but it’s also determine rough age, sex, or facial expression of the user.
of course nobody knows a price yet, but they promise a high-contrast, Full HD screen, which is already better than the surface table from MS.
It will be able to communicate with your mobile devices or respond to motion input, which is picked up by a pair of Sony camcorders.
Here is another video of it in action:
Personally I think surface needs a bit of competition, but only time will tell how good the competition is.
