Have you ever thought about controlling digital devices just by your voice and hand gestures? If no, then don’t miss the chance to feel the new era of human computer interaction (HCI). TipTep Mouse is our original product intended to make HCI more natural, more "humanized". The main aim of this software is to allow the user to control his/her computer without touching mouse, keyboard and screen.
TipTep Mouse is the software that allows distant control of the computer mouse without touching the surface. The main device used in TipTep Mouse is 3D depth Sensor. After the lunch of Microsoft Kinect in 2010 these devices have become available for an exceptionally low price compared to the ones before. Here we support two types of devices – Microsoft Kinect and Asus Xtion Pro. More»

Follow these steps to install OpenNI modules:
