Google new technology, control device without touching them
Google has released it’s new technology, gesture technology makes touch screens look obsolete. It’s called Project Soli; it senses precise hand movements using radar to enable new types of touchless interactions — one where the human hand becomes a natural, intuitive interface for our devices, and it uses those movements to control a device, like a smart watch
The radar sensor itself is tiny, but it can sense movements up to 2-3 feet away at 10,000 frames per second, the Soli sensor can track sub-millimeter motions at high speed and accuracy. This opens up the possibility of many more gestures than just tap and swipe.
Current gesture-sensing products like the kinect use cameras, which are ultimately less reliable than radar. It’s still in the early stages, so don’t expect to see Project Soli in products anytime soon.
Google says “We want to break the tension between the ever-shrinking screen sizes used in wearables, as well as other digital devices, and our ability to interact with them.”
The Project Soli team is planning to release a dev kit that will allow developers to create new interactions and applications. Please sign up for more updates.
