How it Works

Ultraleap’s camera modules detect hands in mid-air and our TouchFree software converts movements into an onscreen cursor.

TouchFree runs invisibly on top of existing user interfaces. There is no need to change system hardware or write any code.

Provides Familiar Touchscreen-Style Interactions:

  • A user’s hand is detected and shown as a cursor displayed on the screen.
  • Items are selected by a simple Air Push motion like tapping the screen.
  • Drag or scroll in mid-air.
  • See Ultraleap’s Design Guidelines for more details on interaction methods.

Get Started:

  1. Install the hand tracking SDK (Windows 4.1+) on your kiosk PC.
  2. Mount an Ultraleap camera module to the kiosk PC and connect it via USB.
  3. Open TouchFree and configure it to work with your target screen.
  4. A hand-driven overlay now runs on top of your kiosk UI, enabling touchless interaction.

TouchFree is only compatible with Windows
