European software maker Extreme Reality (XTR3D) wants to make controlling your computer programs, games and mobile devices as easy as waving your hand. At least, that's what their Izi (pronounced "easy") software is for.
One nice thing off the bat with this technology is that for most computer users it won't require any extra pieces of hardware. Rather than requiring peripherals like Sony's Move and Microsoft's Kinect, Izi uses the front-facing camera that's found on most modern laptop computers or, for desktop users, the webcam that's probably been shoved into a desk drawer for the longest time. Like laptop users, mobile device (smarphone and tablet) users will need the front facing camera as well.
