A very intriguing project from Google is Soli, Which was recently presented to us in the middle of the year and has since lowered its profile and disappeared from the technological radar - control of digital devices of all kinds through small gestures with the hand and fingers, and their absorption in the supersonic medium. In other words, sort of Visit Leap Advanced system that is available to you almost anywhere and can be easily implemented on almost any device.
Practical implementation of Project Soli may only come in a few years, but in the meantime a team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in California is not waiting - proving that a similar capability can be achieved right now, on wearable computers already available for purchase in stores.
The researchers found that speeding up the working frequency of the accelerometer built into almost every smartwatch or fitness bracelet on the market makes it possible to significantly increase its sensitivity to movements occurring in its environment - thus absorbing slight gestures made by the user with his fingers or hands, such as drumming two fingers.Bashing with a finger'For example.
The recording movements can, of course, be translated into specific specific actions, as the team demonstrated and demonstrated in a video posted to the E-YouTube.
It is not at all certain that sophisticated researchers will be able to turn their development into a commercial product themselves - but we firmly believe that proving this ability of theirs can inspire the ideas of commercial companies, who will create hardware dedicated to this use and can advance its implementation in the various devices around us. Does Google have reason to be apprehensive? We'll see.
