The secret to Zkoo’s accuracy isn’t necessarily in the hardware, which is composed of all off-the-shelf parts, but algorithm. It enables the software to capture and analyze the content of 120 frames a second. This software also allows the Zkoo to accurately recognize several different types of hand gestures, and it can use to navigate most touch-based user interfaces.
I saw a demo last month, and the Zkoo was surprisingly accurate at tracking my hands at around 6 feet to 7 feet. It made chopping produce in Fruit Ninja easy. It also allowed me to paint in thin air and move elements in a document around by just waving my hands.
Exvision’s Zkoo Kickstarter campaign is looking to pass a $15,000 funding goal by January 17, and it claims to target shipping of the cameras that quarter.
