The 8K Data Manipulator

The 8K Data Manipulator is a Unity game engine application which harnesses the gesture recognition and limb tracking available through Microsoft Kinect and combines it with the multitouch capability of our 8K display. Using either gesture at a distance or close-up touch, a user can rotate, zoom, and slice a very large graphical dataset. The 8K Data Manipulator is currently being used to visualize seismic data; however, it is capable of loading an arbitrary point cloud or volume, supporting medical, terrestrial, biochemical, social network, design, and other applications.
