Some of the emerging remote interfaces for pervasive display environments. A number of these emerging technologies allow remote interaction with screen displays. Microsoft Touchless is an open source Office Labs Grassroots prototype that can create a multitouch remote environment. The Touchless software development kit (SDK) allows developers create touchless multitouch-based applications using a webcam and visual tracking fiducial markers. SixthSense is a wearable gestural interface that exploits natural hand gesture interactions with digital information displayed in the tangible world. The PointScreen project from the Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) employs hand gesture recognition. It is a novel interface to manipulate digital artifacts touchlessly where the user navigates by pointing toward the screen.
