Primesense and Canesta 3D TV Interfaces

Canesta presents its living room TV interface based on its 3D camera:



Primesense presents its version based on its 3D technology:



From the demo it appears that Primesense system works with much finer hand movements as compared with Canesta. Primesense demo appears to be a part of a longer video, also showing the system reacts to quite faint hand gestures.

  1. Great! The guy makes the wrong gesture while scratching his nose and orders pay per view. Then, he makes a gesture while arguing with his wife and a pizza shows up at his door 30 minutes later. Welcome to the new government stimulus program.

  3. There is an old Hong Kong movie talking about a guy who wanted to invent a voice controled TV ...

    You can find all the jokes ... Don't remember the name of this movie, but so long time ago.

  4. Canesta (Thief of the MESA concept) works on the wrong application!

  5. Primesense is the oldest 3D technology with stripe production. Mircosoft will never ever take the concept in their project Natal!

    I do not agree that Canesta uses MESA CCD/CMOS concept. Canesta sensor looks more similar to PMD's one, than to MESA.

  7. looks like an iPhone Camera does a better job...

  8. It's funny in the first video how the guy struggles with the remote. I didn't realize it was that hard to use; I wonder what the field of view is for the sensor; instead of fighting for the remote, will people now fight to sit in the camera's FOV?

    My be: PMD and MESA approaches are much early than Canesta!
