Gesture Cube – No need to touch – just give it a wave
The way in which we interface with our mobile devices is one area set for radical change. Gesture input is still in its infancy, but the recent arrival of motion controlled gaming will quickly spread to the realization of concepts like the Gesture cube, which will soon see us waving our arms about to browse photos, change the radio station, read messages and check the weather.
IDENT’s GestIC technology is a gesture-based interface system and is applied in a cube that allows you to turn, twist, and pinch your data in 3 dimensional context. Each side of the cube will have different functions and you can access messages and the web just by slipping and sliding on the surface. It also looks quite striking and the interface is great if you’re into high-tech Minority Report stuff.
Gesture Cube uses 3D spatial movement tracking to help transform navigating a device into a magical intuitive experience. Using natural gestures to control our electronics helps to draw them closer to our natural behavior, making things easier and more fun. The result is an intelligent product concept with unlimited possibilities for enhancing daily life with effortless interaction. The Gesture Cube´s design is simple yet so beautiful it doubles as a sculptural icon in your living space. GestIC® electric field sensing technology makes 3D spatial hand or finger movement tracking possible. GestIC® detects movements and distances in 3D space and provides the technical backbone for Gesture Cube´s 3D user interface. GestIC® enables touchfree three-dimensional gesture control on 2D screens from mobile phones, tablet PCs, picture frames and MP3 players all the way to 3D devices like Gesture Cube.
