New release

Windows 8 gesture suite

The Windows 8 Gesture Suite takes advantages of the powerful new touchless gesturing technology from Elliptic Labs and brings touchless natural gesturing to Windows 8.


  • Intuitive and easy to learn
  • Support all Windows 8 metro gestures
  • Power-efficient

Microsoft’s new metro interface changes how consumers interact with the operating system and the design is a perfect fit for touchless gestures. Elliptic’s Windows 8 Gesture Suite gives the users a touchless version of the gestures they already know from a touchscreen and allows the user to interact in an even more natural and intuitive way without having to touch the screen.


Ultrasonic touchless technology uses up to 95% less power than current camera image-based gestural systems, making it an attractive option for device manufactures around the world.

Combine it with the SDK and starter kit

Take full advantage of ultrasound based gestures by adding the SDK. The SDK enables you to create disruptive new ways to interact with your device and your applications. The set of controls allows you to use hand gestures for scrolling, selecting, rotating objects and controlling menus. The kit also allows you to create your own gestures using the unique trajectory control.

Elliptic labs also provide the “Elliptic Ultrasound Starter Kit for Laptops”. This kit is a out-of-the box solution that allows you to get started with ultrasound based gestures without designing your own hardware. The kit is great for testing gesture technology and for application development.
