Motion Gesture Window Shopping

Ecoterre: German researchers are putting the “Windows” into after-hours window shopping, an activity that has been strictly “look, but don’t touch”—at least, until the stores reopen in the morning. At the recent IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, representatives from the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute unveiled an interactive “Shop Window” system that allows would-be customers to learn more about the products in a display, no matter the time of day (or night). Using a Microsoft Kinect-like sensor that recognizes common gestures, window shoppers can learn more about a product simply by pointing at it.
