Toshiba Corp is developing a motion processor for recognizing and displaying moving 3D objects on a PC. If you’re wondering what you might do with such a function, Toshiba suggests using it to play the child’s game of rock, paper, scissors against a PC. More practical uses, however, include developing a gesture based interface that recognizes sign language, so that users can give commands with a hand movement rather than via a keyboard. The prototype processor, which can send a seven-bit, 64×64 pixel image to the PC at a speed of 30 or 50 frames per second, is made up of eight light emitting nodes, a lens and a C-MOS image sensor as well as the means to synchronize the transmission and the reception of a light signal. The software development kit is available now.
