Innovatix has been showing off its innovative side at GITEX Technology Week with two interesting and useful solutions — AirWall and Shop-Tracer.

Reminiscent of something out of a science fiction movie like Minority Report, the AirWall allows users to navigate digital content on a wall in front of them by merely making pointing and dragging gestures.

Exhibiting in hall 2, visitors to the stand can have a go at using the invisible platform which is surrounded by a contoured frame. Users simply dip their digits into the open air frame and their movements are mirrored on an LCD screen that is between 50cm and 10 metres away. The company envisages the AirWall being used for a variety of uses including as a marketing tool or as a public service device such as for mall information displays.

On top of that Innovatix is attempting to wow the browsers at GITEX with Shop-Tracer which tracks shopping trolleys as they make their way around a store. The Shop-Tracer works due to tiny RFiD/ WiFi chips implanted in each trolley. The main users of the Shop-Tracer, according to Innovatix, are store managers and owners who use it to identify ‘hot and cold’ areas of their stores, plan itinerary mapping and give statistical feedback.
