Google’s New Project Is So Insanely Advanced It Will Blow You Away. This chip is actually a miniature gesture radar that captures even the most complex hand movements at close range, at unbelievably hyper speeds and replicates hand gestures. Simply put, this technology is so bafflingly accurate that you could operate any device (fitted with this) without having to even touch it.
The technology has the potential to get rid of controllers and input devices. Its biggest impact could be in virtual and augmented reality. When using VR headsets, users now need to hold controllers, but Project Soli could allow hand gesture movement to define how a user roams a virtual world.
