A New Approach to E-Learning and Shared-Working: 3D Imaging Permits Gesture Control in Virtual Worlds

The interaction through gesture control in E-learning environments, virtual teams, and in remote conferences, is based on 3D imaging and increases the focus and attention of participants though innovative applications.

Knowledge is more easily conveyed, exchanged, and retained when a high level of natural user interaction is employed. E-learning providers are developing novel interactive applications based on this principle. In addition, teams working in different locations benefit from the improved clarity and perspective in virtual meetings; for example, a user can turn objects 360° by simply pointing at them. 3D image processing permits intuitive gesture control for the precise interaction between the user and the software. Currently, the depth perception required for this purpose is simple to integrate into mobile devices with small 3D modules for immersive user interactions, and an intuitive user experience. This article shows how only 3D enables this interaction and shows the advantages of modern 3D technology for developer and companies seeking for cutting-edge ways of collaboration through virtual worlds
