New Fujitsu devices run on the recently unveiled Microsoft Windows 8 operating system, which offers users a sleeker, more intuitive interface and is designed specifically for use with touch and gesture user interfaces. This relationship continues and expands the companies’ partnership, which began with PointGrab’s Windows 7 solution and now includes its Windows 8 software. It also furthers PointGrab’s dominance in the hand gesture control market, adding to the millions of devices that currently feature its solutions. Fujitsu is among the first wave of manufacturers to incorporate PointGrab’s Windows 8 solution into their products. PointGrab’s Windows 8 software leverages the company’s success with its Windows 7 product to provide natural user interface (NUI) hand gesture functionality to customers, thus enabling an intuitive, no-touch experience with consumer devices. Now, options such as multimedia control, entertainment and business program navigation, and other applications are easily conducted without ever physically touching the product. PointGrab accomplishes all of this by simply using a device’s standard, internal 2-D camera. “We’re excited to grow our partnership with Fujitsu, a company we deeply respect, to bring our very latest solution to market on their impressive new line of devices that feature Microsoft’s Windows 8,” said PointGrab CEO, Haim Perski. “Microsoft’s most recent operating system is true step forward in making technology more intuitive and streamlined, and PointGrab software has been engineered to make the most of that.” With its solutions already featured on several millions of products around the world, PointGrab has the industry’s widest assortment of gestures for 2-D cameras, using both one and two hands. Gestures can be incorporated directly from the PointGrab library or customized to clients’ specifications. PointGrab software is available for devices running either Intel or ARM-based processors. “Fujitsu’s latest devices add new levels of mobility and enjoyment to the lives of our users, and PointGrab’s hands-free solution is a key offering in this line of products,” said Hisamichi Higuchi, General Manager of Advanced Technology Division, Fujitsu Ltd. “We pride ourselves in offering customers cutting-edge equipment that features groundbreaking technology.
