We are typing and clicking everyday by using the keyboard and mouse, we seem to have been inseparable from the keyboards and mouse, we have been accustomed to them since they are born,but have you wondered that what to do without the keyboard and mouse, maybe we need to try some special new tools.
The phone keypad and touch screen operation allow us to enjoy the considerable convenient, but do you want to switch to the “three-dimensional input mode” from the “two-dimensional touch world? Please together with Onu-mall take a look a wearable input device named Gest.
Gest allows you to use both hands to work in a more intuitive manner. Simply slide your finger, it is possible to switch between applications; you can control the mouse by extending a finger moving around; you are able to adjust the slider in Photoshop by twisting palm ; you can even grab your 3D model and rotate to view.
Gest is a new way of operating computers and other devices. It can quantify your hand and finger position, it is known as a high enough accuracy, so you can use it to control in an intuitive manner.
Gest wearing size fits everyone, but it is capacity of “capturing” your because nobody has the same control gestures, but Gest will learn how to adapt and perform common gestures, pointing, slid, playing, grab, rotate, and so on.
It is also very flexible, you can write custom gestures to the device, just doing a simple action,you can get what you want to do. For example, the revocation action may be sliding your finger to the left. You can also monitor your own custom gestures to ensure precision and accuracy.
Given the precision and speed, Gest uses bluetooth low energy (BLE) to connect all devices, its finger tracking technology delay 40-60 milliseconds, the hardware with 15 sensors contribute to its better precision to identify more accurate gestures.
Based on its precision and accurate identification basis, we can use it to do more, such as Photoshop, simply flick of the finger, you can easily add layers, adjust the value revocation action or change your brush size, make the creation easier.
Those working with Maya, 3DS or AutoCAD three-dimensional modeling tool can easily rotate and check 3D models.
Definitely,the most anticipated feature of Gest is typing. Sometimes we also have to helpless in phone keypad input efficiency, portable keyboards are rarely able to meet the efficient, comfortable and accurate. So Gest team hopes to solve this problem.
That’s why it has the typing function, although now typing system is only an experimental feature, you must want to be “the first one” to help testing and improving the system,don’t you. If you already have a “comfortably” skills and want to try taking typing, be sure to choose to buy two Gest controller to unlock the input function to typing everywhere as long as you want by raising your hand.
Gest team has built a API, so you can use the hand position and movement data. They developed an efficient mobile processing algorithms to make complex gesture recognition functions can be done at a very low latency. If you do not want to directly use the data calculated by the motion, they can also provide the raw sensor data, providing Java and Python API.
With the help of these features later,developers can integrate via its SDK with VR or AR device in the future , it would be even better as an auxiliary VR equipment accessories.
