Grayhill Inc. announced the launch of its Instinct technology at MEDTEC Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. The firm’s Multi-Touch Ring Encoder with Instinct brings gesture recognition to the controls of medical imaging devices. According to Grayhill, Instinct is a set of multitouch gesture-recognition software that, when integrated with Grayhill physical components, creates more-intuitive human interface solutions. A touchpad on the device surface recognises multiple finger touches and motions and transmits them via USB to a CPU that decodes the gestures and carries them out. This way, the user gets the benefit of gesture recognition without ever touching the display.
For more precise control, a ring encoder encircles the touchpad and the entire knob can be pressed. The rotary function allows the user to scroll through options and the pushbutton selects the desired setting. With the implementation of the Instinct Ring Encoder, other devices such as joysticks, touchpads, trackballs and pushbuttons can be eliminated.
