New Controller Bids to Replace Keyboard and Mouse
The Flow wireless controller works with a variety of apps like YouTube, Autocad and Spotify, and could replace your mouse and keyboard
The current batch of computer controls — mouse, keyboard, game controller, touchpad — do a reasonable job of letting you interact with your devices but can’t really be described as intuitive or customizable. The Indiegogo campaign for Flow promises to offer an alternative that is both.
Flow looks like a hockey puck, and combines touch sensitivity, gesture recognition and haptic technology for a highly precise scan of what your hand is doing, which it translates into specific commands for the program on your computer. This means a wider variety of options than you get with a mouse, which eliminates the need for cascading menus.
