A San Francisco-based startup developed a seamless TV system that combines both web content and television programming.
InAir is the name entitled to the augmented reality TV that presents both the television programming alongside related web content. It can allow a person to watch their desired television programmes while simultaneously searching data on any website. The product opens new horizons of multi-tasking possibilities that provides flexibility to the user and avoids them from switching from one device to another or having to use two or more devices at the same time for multiple tasks, such as tablets or smartphones.
The startup that is the brains behind the InAir is SeeSpace, who have developed the world’s first augmented reality TV. The product has been presented to be under the augmented category is because it allows for a virtually enhanced view connecting the real word concepts to you, embedded within the system.
The television features allow include sensors that capture body movement and hand gestures with the use of an additional attachment such as Kinect, Leap Motion, or a mobile application available for free in the iOS and Android stores where the users can function the movement of content on the screen with ease. Another feature is the 3D function that converts your TV into a futuristic device that makes additional layars of content to float in front of the TV. When compared to the normal functionality of a TV the InAir overcomes high-end technology factor with realistic outputs.
InAir can be set up on any HDMI compatible TV by plugging it directly into the TV set and a cable box. IT also includes a software development kit that upgrades the products capabilities even when accessing the internet with both built-in as well as connecting to any available WiFi. InAir is capable of doing much more than Smart TVs can and focuses on being the breaking point of SmartTv evolution, overcoming the power of standard day-to-day TVs.
The InAir Kickstarter campaign has already raised more than $87,000 of its $100,000 goal, with about a month left to go. For an $89 donation, backers can get an early version of the InAir, which is expected to ship this September.
