Our award-winning TouchFree software combines world-leading hand tracking with seamless control over interactive kiosk applications.

It detects a user’s hand in mid-air and converts it to an on-screen cursor. Gesture control allows easy, intuitive, and clean interaction with kiosks and appliances.

Particularly suitable for retrofitting interactive kiosks or advertising totems with touchless gesture control.

Use these instructions to:

  1. Retrofit existing touchscreen interfaces with gesture control

  2. Install TouchFree in preparation for using our TouchFree Tooling for Web or Unity. This allows you to develop with gesture control as a native feature.

Here you can:

  • change interaction type

  • modify interaction behaviours (e.g. scrolling behaviour and cursor responsiveness)

  • restrict the tracking zone area (useful in busy areas)

From the TouchFree Welcome Screen you can navigate to User Interface Settings.

Use these to:

  • modify cursor properties

If you are using your own application, changes within User Interface Settings will not impact this.

Full details on User Interface Settings can be found on the Developer Resource Site.
