F-Origin and Trolltech Partnership Delivers Motion Control Functionality to Linux-Based Devices

Partnership Streamlines Development For Creating Next-Generation User Interfaces For Mobile Devices

PLEASANTON, Calif. and REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- F-Origin, pioneers in innovative touch screen, gesturing and motion-control solutions and platforms, and Trolltech, creators of application development platforms for desktop and mobile devices, today announced that they are partnering to bring motion control to Linux-based devices. The partnership will enable a new generation of post-iPhone interfaces that take innovation and usability to a new level.

As part of the partnership, Trolltech and F-Origin are working together to seamlessly integrate Trolltech's Qtopia platform for Linux based devices with F-Origin's IRIS Motion Control SDK. Together, they provide a solution that enables simple and quick creation of motion-controlled interfaces, games and applications.

"As the bar continues to rise in mobile usability, the ability to efficiently implement never-before-seen user interfaces is imperative," said Benoit Schillings, Trolltech CTO. "Our partnership with F-Origin will aim to efficiently deliver the next-generation of user interfaces. They are a leader in creating motion and gesture-based navigation functionality, which adds great value for our Qtopia customers."

Trolltech's Qtopia platform allows device manufacturers to easily create and customize the user experience by providing a mature, flexible foundation that enables efficient creation of Linux-based devices and interfaces.

"Trolltech has a highly flexible and open platform for creating handheld user interfaces," said Joe Carsanaro, President and CEO of F-Origin. "When it came time for us to choose a platform to demonstrate our IRIS technology, Qtopia was a natural fit. The ease of use and flexibility of Qtopia makes it an ideal platform to build upon for companies seeking to create interfaces that have never been seen before."

The new Qtopia extensions for IRIS allow Qtopia applications to draw on a virtual surface that is larger than the physical screen. IRIS renders a 3D first-person perspective view of this surface, which users can control by simply tilting the device and dragging a finger across the display area.

The IRIS API stack also provides a rich toolbox of features that Qtopia developers can use to design their own innovative motion-controlled interfaces. The services provided by these APIs include:

-- Detection and notification of meaningful motion events, such as landscape/portrait rotation and gestures. -- Mapping physical device movement to the virtual movement of 3D objects, virtual cameras, etc. -- Real-time modeling of the device's precise orientation with respect to gravity, as well as its relative orientation with respect to some starting orientation. -- Filtering, normalization and more.

The list of ‘new paradigm’ technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts’ at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.
WebRTC is an up-and-coming standard that enables real-time voice and video to be directly embedded into browsers making the browser a primary user interface for communications and collaboration.
