STOCKHOLM, June 30 Selfie fans, your life just
got a little easier. A Swedish tech start-up has launched an app
for Apple devices that lets people take photos of themselves
without having to touch their screens.
Using touchless technology which it says is ideal for taking
"selfies" or "groupies", Crunchfish's GoCam app lets users
trigger photos or videos from a distance with just hand
Photos can be triggered from a distance of up to 3 m
(yards), it says.
The company, based in the southern Swedish city of Malmo,
says the free GoCam app will be initially available in Sweden
While gesture recognition has become more popular thanks to
products such as Microsoft's Kinect for video games,
the power-hungry technology has yet to become mainstream in
computers or mobile devices.
