World's First Android Game Controlled with 3D Gestures at CES 2014


World’s First Android Game Controlled with 3D Gestures at CES 2014

Experience the touchless body motion control on Android at CES 2014. 3DiVi Company together with Etron Technology, Inc. unveil WeelRush, the popular game for Android now controlled with 3D gestures, powered by Etron Tech’s eSP870 Gesture / Body Motion Control ICs and Nuidroid 3D gesture recognition middleware.

Etron’s eSP870 with Nuidroid middleware are what bring 3D perception capabilities and body motion controlled to the new generation of Android based game consoles and Smart TVs. It sets an example of how easily any existing Android game can be enhanced with body motion control.

“Sales revenue of motion controlled games is already close to $2B at traditional hardware platforms. We strongly believe in great market opportunity for 3D motion tracking in Android ecosystem as well – from body motion controlled games in living room to audience detection and analytics in digital signage. We are excited to bring 3D gesture recognition capabilities to Android and are looking for OEMs and platform owners interested to leverage their products with NUI capabilities. The good news is our solution is Android ecosystem friendly – application developers will be able to easily add motion control to any existing Android application.” – says Dmitry Morozov, Business Development Director at 3DiVi Company.

“A look into the coming year’s technology of Gesture / Motion Recognition Control, Etron exhibits its latest Gesture / Skeleton Recognition ICs – eSP870 at the show. With uniquely competitive cost and low power and achieve small form factors, Etron’s eSP870 are quickly incorporate gesture/skeleton control and 3D – video / image capture functionality into the newest and most exciting applications. As well, it realize full range recognition for all kinds of applications: smart phones, tablets, game consoles, personal computers, note books, TVs and other emerging setting.” – says Ben Wu, Vice President at Etron Tech.

About eSP870 / Eagle Eyes Platform

The popularity of 3D image capturing, motion-recognition and display technology is growing fast, but the technology is complicated and the hardware price is high. It needs SoC technology to lower the cost, so as to penetrate deeper into the consumer market. Etron’s eSP870 Gesture/Skeleton Recognition IC and Eagle Eyes platform make their debut as new enablers of Gesture/Motion Recognition Control technology. Based on the product line’s unique design, the eSP870 is a 3D SoC that offers high performance and low cost, creating competitiveness for Etron in the 3D gesture / body motion controlled market.
