TAP M&E Paris Air Show 2011

June 26th, 2011 by NearInteraction

NearInteraction was part of the 49th International Paris Air Show 2011 held at the Le Bourget Airport at the end of June, with a series of interactive installations revealing the services offered by TAP Maintenance and Engineering (TAP M&E). NearInteraction was responsible for an eye-catching gesture based interactive wall, comprised of 4 large scale high-res screens where visitors were able to manipulate the inner workings of an aeroplane by using their arms, and an all inclusive iPad app of TAP M&E facts and figures which connected in real-time to the interactive wall, displaying any content that was being browsed at that moment.

At an event that brings together more than 2100 exhibitors from 45 countries, it is an important consideration to stand out from the crowd, a consideration achieved by NearInteraction with an interactive LED installation embedded into the booth’s specially designed awnings, featuring RGB light that was able to respond to both presence and movement with beautiful dynamical transitions of color as attendees passed by.

touchless control technology

August 16th, 2010 by NearInteraction

“fraunhofer’s fit is the latest touchless control system that uses gestures to control computer interfaces.
the design is unique because it requires no special equipment, gloves or other wearable controllers.
the user simply places their hands in the air in front of a camera. the computer can then sense their
hand and can visually see each finger. the users movements are then translated on screen allowing
them to manipulate objects through various gestures and motions. the system is so sophisticated it
can operate in three-dimensions, allowing various objects to be manipulated at varying depths.”

iPoint 3D

March 2nd, 2009 by NearInteraction


The brilliant minds over at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft have decided to bust out a 3D innovation that they actually dare to compare their creation to something you’d see in a science fiction flick.

The technology enables users to interact with a 3D display via simple gestures – all without touching the panel and without those style-smashing 3D glasses, the heart of it involving a recognition device (usually suspended above the user) and a pair of inbuilt cameras. Simple.

You can get up close and personal with the iPoint 3D at CeBIT this week.
