video in any way,” explained Vincent. “We also provide a variety of ‘out of the box’ interactive scenarios that can be used ‘as is’, or easily adapted with your corporate logo to get your own custom- branded interactive display up and running quickly.”


Vincent added: “In 1985 we invented video gesture control. The idea was that we could use cameras to track our whole bodies to interact with displays, and we pioneered various forms and evangelized it for the next 28 years, getting over 30 patents along the way. In 1999, we invented interactive floors and have done thousands of installations since then. Now, we have endless examples of how interactive floors are an ongoing creative evolution.”


The company’s past may well be a solid one, but their future is looking pretty bright too. When asked about plans regarding flooring in the future, Vincent is clear on his intentions: “With the success of the GroundFX System, GestureTek decided to make a complete turnkey, plug and play version called the CUBE. It was an all in one 18" X 18" X 24" box, that sits on the floor, and has a large interactive projection area. The CUBE has been very successful for us, as it's made it super simple to deliver the product without the need to send a technician. Press one button and you have an instant interactive projection experience. We have now sold thousands of these, and plan to keep moving in this direction, making all of our products into turnkey solutions.”


It’s interesting to see that the experience isn’t just an enjoyable one for the end-users. Vincent sees many people enjoying the technology he and his team have developed: “Whenever an installation is placed, people swarm to it to play with the content. In some cases, both children and adults will get very active.” For the guys and girls at Gesturetek, however: “It’s the way others will gather around to watch those people who are interacting that makes us the most happy.” And that’s a sentiment no one can argue with.
