Type-Hover-Swipe keyboard with gesture recognition technology

Type-Hover-Swipe keyboard with gesture recognition technology by Microsoft Research

Even with so much technology advent for gesture control applications people still prefer to use the good old keyboard and mouse for doing usual tasks when working on their computer. So the best way is to make a keyboard that has embedded gesture control technology, making it suitable for gesture controlled applications. A team over at Microsoft Research comprising Stuart Taylor, Cem Keskin, Otmar Hilliges, Shahram Izadi, and John Helmes have created an augmented mechanical keyboard that senses motion gestures performed directly over the device. Type-Hover-Swipe keyboard, as they call it, has 16×4 array of infrared proximity sensors (operating at over 300 hertz) embedded on the circuit board close to the keys. These sensors track hand movement and provide a very smooth gesture control interface for running applications.

AllSee, battery-less gesture recognition technology for electronic devices

AllSee battery less gesture recognition technology

Gesture controlled electronics could soon get a next level upgrade as a battery less gesture recognition system makes its appearance into the technology space. Research headed by Shyam Gollakota and his students at University of Washington have developed a low-power gesture recognition system called AllSee that brings gesture recognition to all devices like smartphones, home electronics, robots and other gadgets. All that is needed is a compatible app and AllSee will enable gesture recognition for that device irrespective of the device’s hardware. This amazing new technology uses TV signals to power the chip that uses just 10 microwatts of power, meaning that it can be turned on at all times and won’t require any external battery source. This ground-breaking gesture recognition technology will be on show at Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation conference in Seattle between April 2-4, 2014.

Sixense MakeVR for easy creation of 3D models by using just hand gestures


The scope of 3D printing has expanded and progressed to encompass more complex items, be it a fully working gun or an Aston Martin DB4 replica. However, as applauding audiences, we tend to overlook one crucial element behind a 3D printed project – the complex CAD that makes it possible to achieve these high levels of detailing. Ironically, it is the complexity of 3D modeling via software and their interface menus that keeps 3D printing out of reach for many interested DIYers. Fortunately, California-based Sixense team has found a solution to this predicament by creating the MakeVR. Billed as the world’s most accessible 3D modeling system, the ambit is all about an intuitive interface that makes it easier for amateurs to delve into the art of crafting three-dimensional objects.

Gestural control technology for mobile devices will overtake touchscreen input methods

3dim Tech gestural control technology

Just when you geeks out there were thinking that touchscreens are the norm when it comes to modern day gadgets, a new technology is paving way to eliminate the dominance of touchscreens all together with its intuitive applications. 3dim Tech, the winner of prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s 2013 MIT $100k business plan competition has created new software that will make gestural control interaction on smart mobile devices and other gadgets a cake walk. With no need to touch your gadget’s screen, the data input can be provided directly through projections for example virtual keyboards that can be projected away from the gadget, thereby making it easy for the user to provide the input and keeping the display clean of any smudges or stains. This could in a way spell doomsday for gadget accessories like Bluetooth keyboards, come year 2014.
