As technology made a great leap recently and the devices are becoming smaller and smaller, but our hands and fingers aren’t. It might be not very comfortable to use devices with small controls, so it’s a new problem for the scientists to solve.

Smart heads in Google offered a solution for the problem: to control the device only with hand gestures. They called it Project Soli.

If they will succeed in their work, who knows, maybe one day we will be able to operate our watches with small gestures, nowadays many of us use to operate the phone or a tablet.

Your hands are with you all the time, so you don’t need additional things to control the device, like stylus, for example.

– said the representative of Google.

But this isn’t the new technology. The gesture technology has been known earlier and it is used nowadays in many electronic devices like Kinect. But the main disadvantage of this technology is the availability of light, so this technology is worthless in the situations when you don’t have the light source nearby, a dark room for example.

But Google’s scientists provided their solution for this problem, and it is the radar technology that can distinguish moves of different types, like the movement of the fingers or even detect crossed fingers.

This is the way, the radar technology works

So the solution is found and its only a matter of time, when software developers will create the needed software to create first operable prototypes.
