imageHOLDERS launches hygienic, gesture controlled touchless kiosk

imageHOLDERS has unveiled its first gesture controlled touchless kiosk in response to the global pandemic.

Touchless self-service solutions avoid hand to kiosk contact and eliminate any hygiene concerns. With many companies now turning to no-touch tech and contactless devices, imageHOLDERS is ‘on a mission to be at the forefront of self-service kiosk technology, innovating digital kiosks based on what’s most important for customers and end users’.

80% of consumers (according to an UltraLeap survey) think public touchscreens are unhygienic and so this latest innovation from imageHOLDERS  is likely to generate serious interest. Restoring public confidence will be play an important part in the ongoing recovery.

imageHOLDERS’ gesture control technology uses an optical hand tracking module that captures the movement of hands and fingers so they can interact naturally with the on-screen content.

The touchless self-service kiosk is powered by a hand tracking camera. Users can type, select, scroll and navigate a kiosk display using mid-air gestures and without having to touch the screen. This non-touch approach reduces the risk of spreading germs and bacteria build up at a self-service kiosk, something customers and end users have become increasingly aware of since the outbreak of Covid-19.

The controller is capable of tracking hands within a 3D interactive zone that extends up to 60cm or more. The software can discern 27 distinct hand elements, including bones and joints, and track them even when they are obscured by other parts of the hands.

The imageHOLDERS touchless kiosk is both intuitive and easy to use for businesses. A selection of optional devices can be added, including printers, scanners, and payment devices – to ensure each kiosk is tailored to individual business needs.

‘We are extremely proud of our latest innovation’, CEO Adrian Thompson said. ‘Our mission for this touchless kiosk was to instil confidence in the general public and in turn, galvanise multiple industries to get back to full strength in a post-Covid world. imageHOLDERS interactive kiosk solutions are both intuitive and easy to use. Plus, our digital kiosks are tailorable to every business for each required user journey.

‘Developing this touchless technology was a gratifying challenge and I am very excited to see how it helps people navigate their busy lives in real world applications’, Adrian concluded.
