Crunchfish is pleased to announce the public release of XR Tracking 2.0, which is the company’s newest and most powerful gesture software for Augmented Reality (AR) applications. With a full 3D experience XR Tracking 2.0 enables a powerful gesture interaction using a standard 2D RGB camera. On top of that there are a lot of updates in underlying algorithms. XR Tracking 2.0 first debuted at Augmented World Expo (AWE) US in May 2019. Now, with an updated downloadable demo, Crunchfish is making it possible for everyone to try it out in minutes. 

Demand is growing for user-friendly and efficient ways to engage with AR smart glasses. Without a touchscreen, the natural way to interact is to use touchless hand gestures. Crunchfish is in the forefront of development within the AR sector and provides efficient gesture interaction for enterprise and consumer AR smart glasses.

XR Tracking 2.0 is made for touchless interaction in XR and was demoed at Augmented World Expo (AWE) US in May 2019. XR Tracking offers the unique experience of a mouse-like UI paradigm by just using a hand. The position of the hand is tracked with high precision for a responsive UI feedback. The detection is specially adopted for AR/VR glasses where the camera is mounted on the device, facing away from the user. The detected gesture also provides a tracked position. It is easy to adopt to existing applications and offer a quick learning curve for the user since fewer gestures need to be remembered and the interaction can be made consistent.
