Led by CEO Joakim Nydemark, and CTO Paul Cronholm Crunchfish provides device manufacturers and mobile application developers with a platform that enables mobile touchless interaction by gestures.
Its Touchless A3D® software platform detects and tracks objects in three dimensions relying only on the video stream from the embedded camera in a device. The platform is hardware independent and runs on all major mobile operating systems. The technology can be experienced by downloading GoCam on iOS, a touchless camera and video app.
