Our Scientific paper

In this paper, we will be researching what the future of 3D cameras will be. This topic is subdivided in three categories: (1) mapping or recording, (2) standalone interaction and (3) enhanced interaction.
Our research is mainly based on experiments performed by others and our personal experience. We also used research material from touch screens and we compared the 3D camera to similar existing techniques. To confirm these deductions, we had an interview with Jan Derboven, researcher in touch interfaces and gestural interaction from the K.U. Leuven.
The results showed that mapping cameras have a great future once the resolution and accuracy increases. Standalone 3D cameras will only be successful as long as the interactions are kept very basic. To overcome this limitation, enhanced interaction provides the solution.
