Gesture Input Interface For Mobile Devices

Gesture Input Interface For Mobile Devices

Researchers at the University of Tokyo are studying new ways to interact with technology.

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a prototype input method for mobile devices that can detect the position of the user’s hand in 3D space. This builds a platform for gesture input, translating finger movements into mouse-like tracking and clicks. While at this point, it’s less functional than touchscreen interfaces, the system is laying the groundwork for more advanced gesture-controlled devices that can be projected anywhere.
