GestureKey has been designed to support any PC that runs Windows 8 and a uses a Windows 8 compliant multitouch touchscreen.
GestureKey can be used to gesture enable an endless variety of applications, even ones that were not designed with touch in mind. As long as an application can be run in Windows 8 "compatibility mode," it can be gesture-enabled. For example, games that were designed to run on Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Window XP can be run on Windows 8 and controlled via GestureKey so that classic keyboard controls come alive using elegant multitouch gestures.
GestureKey has an extremely low CPU footprint and can effectively be run in the background on virtually any Windows 8* Ultrabook or All-In-One PC. As such the hardware requirements or minimum specification to run GestureKey are the same as that of the minimum recommended specification for Windows 8 Ultrabook machines:
- Windows 8*
- 1.4 gigahertz (GHz) processor (CPU)
- 2 gigabyte (GB) RAM
- 30 MB hard disk space
- Touchscreen** supporting 2 or more touch points
(*does not include Windows RT)
