An interface with gestural input without touch: Conventional posters show slogans and images, which do not change. The "Interactive Poster", however, has many features, that can be manipulated and selected by the user.

The "Interactive Poster" is a multi media interpretation of the conventional poster. Without abandoning the usual striking design, interactive interfaces and moving images extend the potential for communication. The content of the poster therefore communicates in such a way as to accommodate the precise needs of the observer. Elements from television, film, and video are seamlessly integrated. The resonance of the poster is evaluated and communication can therefore be optimised. Quantitative and qualitative appraisal of contacts, allow analysis of the sites and the messages.

In conjunction with our PointScreen technology, a gesture interface without touch, a public-space information terminal emerges. Through hand movements the audience interacts with text objects, images and their position. Information discovery becomes a playful game.

The multimedia implementation of screen design and content programming exploits the potential of the interface.
Thus the visitor becomes the conductor of an audiovisual presentation.
The PointScreen™ technology is based on the principle of Electric Field Sensing (EFS): the dynamics of the body—such as gestures and movement—are measured and digitally registered. This new form of interactive communication enables the use of gestures for real-time navigation and interaction. This innovative paradigm of HCI technology enables the production of touchless input-systems that are cost-effective and easy to maintain, with design flexibility.
