XTR and TI team for gesturing engine using next-gen tech

Gesture controls with no touch needed

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Sep 13, 2010 4:08 pm

Gesture controls are very common today with the iPhone really putting gesture control on the map when it launched in 2007. Today you can control all manner of smartphones and computers using gestures like swiping to change pages or scroll and much more. The catch with touchscreen gesture control is that you have to have the device in hand to use the gestures.

TI and Extreme Reality have teamed up on next-generation gesture control tech that allows the user to control a device without actually touching the screen. The new tech can even allow the user to control a smartphone or other device from across the room. The tech uses a front mounted camera to sense the gestures and turn them into commands.

 

The system is optimized for the TI OMAP platform and can work with all sorts of gestures. Supported gestures include point, click, drag, scroll, zoom, and rotate. Other than offering the ability to control, a device from across the room users would also be able to control the phone without touching it while driving or exercising. There is no word on when the tech will come to market.
