Innovation Chapel

In 2009, North Kingdom met with Adopticum and immediately got excited about the potential of the 3D camera technology developed by Optronic and especially that the camera can measure the distance between you and the camera. This led to an application submitted to Vinnova, who accepted the project and partly funded it. We have combined an 82-inch touch-screen with the 3D camera to allow you to interact with characters, called Woodbots.


The difference between Xbox Kinect and our camera is that we are using time of flight. Kinect uses a structured light and can maintain tracking through a range of up to 3.6 metres whereas Fotonic has a max range of 7 metres. The Kinect sensor is built for use in living rooms and our camera has been optimised for industrial and demanding environments. Both cameras are using imaging CMOS sensors.


There is a racing game in which you use the movements of your hands to navigate and fly in the game environment. Overall this initiative represents the innovation-driven region of Skellefteå and its openness for collaboration and networking across different branches and companies. The 3D camera uses Time-of-flight (TOF) technology (this can be explained as radar operating with light) This technology is developed and made by Optronic.

Under the surface we find two 2.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5620 “Westmere” processors and an ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphic cards, a Wi-Fi connection and 12 Bose micro speakers. The table is 2.74 m long, 1.52 m wide, 76 cm high and 5 cm thick. The surface, which is more or less a huge screen, is made of soft acrylic that gives the correct smooth, low-friction coating. The screen is supported Apple’s new HiDPI, which gives a resolution of 7680 × 4320 pixel (8K).
