Handy Potter, gesture-based 3-D modeling software to make 3d shapes with hand motion
Purdue University developed Handy Potter, a hand-free, gesture-based 3-D modeling software, that can produce digital models or 3d shapes as well as express any ideas instantly through natural hand movements devoid of applying a mouse. The 3d design can be printed on a 3d printer. This newest 3d modeling app will be marketed by Zero UI, a Cupertino, California-based company having expertize in 3D modeling technology.
This latest 3d technology can be useful in the field of games, architecture, art and engineering design.
With Handy Potter, one can generate various digital models like drums, tables, lamps and other items on a computer.
This 3d modeling program follows a modeling scheme dubbed intelligent generalized cylinders (IGC) system.
Handy Potter can replace the backdated computer-aided design tools used for making geometric shapes through a depth-sensing camera with sophisticated software algorithms to understand hand motions and gestures.
