Etronika introducing kinect-based online banking at finovate europe 2012

February 7, 2012

On February 7, during financial and banking technology innovations conference ”FinovateEurope 2012”* in the heart of London ETRONIKA showcased new version of Microsoft Kinect-based online banking application. Both conference organizers and the audience reaction were highly favorable.

ETRONIKA is the first company that came up with “natural” user interface idea for online banking. Application debuted last year in the CTIA conference, and now – we bring to the world more sophisticated and polished version.

Now you can use your voice to navigate into online banking. Just talk to navigate or make payment. Check your offers, balance, and savings. Your daily rate of words already ended? Use your gestures: move to the next hub in the dashboard using gestures, “swipe” your right or left hand across your body. Lift your hands straight and unfold them to open your selection. If you make inversed gesture – you will close your selection.

Our application mirrors human identification by analyzing user’s face, voice, and the ease and simplicity of being identified just by looking at the device and speaking a phrase. In unison with Microsoft we use our own and third party Biometric User Authentication and Identification Technology to identify user.

For additional security measures, when client makes payment, he has to verify payment by entering PIN code to his phone. If you step back or leave the area observed by Kinect sensor – you will be disconnected from your online banking session.

ETRONIKA is also one of the few companies worldwide that have received Kinect for Windows & SDK before public announcement. We are a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, as well as a member of Microsoft Kinect Early Adopters program. That’s way we had demonstrated fully working application with cutting-edge UX approach to financial online services publicly just few days after Kinect for Windows release.
