Gestureworks Core and GestureKey Release

Ideum is releasing two new software tools that will change the way you build exhibits and interact with computers.

This week we released Gestureworks Core for authoring multitouch and motion recognition applications (using the Leap Motion controller) for C++, C# .NET, Java, and Python. Development of the Core has been ongoing since 2011 – some of the foundational work goes back even farther. Core development has been largely self-funded, although we are very grateful for the support we received from the Los Alamos National Laboratories Venture Acceleration Fund (VAF) in 2012. We are incredibly excited about Core and believe we’ve created the most powerful and fastest authoring platform for multitouch and motion recognition available.

We’ve also released our first Gestureworks-powered utility called GestureKey. This unique utility for Windows 8 maps gestures to key commands and mouse events, making legacy applications multitouch-enabled. It is incredibly easy-to-use; you can add multitouch to virtually any Windows app in minutes with no programming.

Find more of the Gestureworks story in the About section on the newly redesigned Gestureworks site. Below are videos of Core and GestureKey in action.
