The touchless technology, through which one can operate his/her smartphone just by gestures, has once again awestrucked many. But will it prove to be a begining of a new era of smartphone technology?
Time has come to wave goodbye to the touch screen. It is not a joke! The new technology has made it possible and soon one would be able to swipe and point in mid-air in order to operate a smartphone. A company has discovered a new touchless gestures powered by ultrasound. The company has new ‘Multi-Layer Interaction’ technology designed to bring users intuitive device interactions.
The team made this breakthrough discovery by introducing multi-layer interaction. This technology enables the phone to display different content, based on the distance between the hand and the handset. Without touching the device, as the hand moves towards the phone, for example, the screen lights up and information is displayed. As one continues further to move hand closer, different information is revealed. The company priorities is all about improving the user experience and by presenting easier ways to interact with mobile devices. This makes it faster to work with applications, one use repeatedly during the day, such as checking messages, playing games, navigating maps, interacting with social media, and watching videos, all by using gestures.
In a demonstration video using a prototype device, the company showed how users can lock and unlock the smartphone by just double tapping in the air or waving a hand back and forth. The user also played a game by waving a hand in and out and accessed notifications on a locked phone by moving a hand towards the device.
Just when the tech pundit thought that smartphone technology had reached its saturation point, this technology has once again shown the future for the next generation of mobile devices by inventing a new technology that helps control a smartphone with gestures.
