Main Digest

NPointer software works with a simple webcam to enable computer control and navigation without a mouse or trackpad. Hand or arm gestures can be used or, for people with disabilities, head gestures can also be used to scroll, click, double-click and do most other navigation functions for Windows programs.

Neurotechnology, a provider of high-precision biometric identification, object recognition and computer vision technologies, 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.

"The 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 Windows XP or newer operating system.

NPointer is the first end-user computer control and navigation product from Neurotechnology, which also offers SentiSight SDK for the development of object recognition, computer vision and robotics applications.

The entire line of Neurotechnology SDK products for object recognition and biometric identification are available with highly competitive licensing options through Neurotechnology or from distributors worldwide.
