After the launch of the Android Wear platform, Google tries to improve ways of interacting with the user and his watch. The new Google patent Is a system of sensors for recognizing gestures, similar to system of sensors and cameras True Depth, which is responsible for face recognition in iPhone X.
What does she know?
AT Unlike development of Apple, Google is not oriented on security, and on improved interaction. Until now, an unnamed system can recognize hand movements and user's fingers, responding to in a certain way. Something like the sign language special forces. For example, swipe your fingers in can be thrown off by a pedometer, hand compression in The fist switches the backlighting mode and throw an invisible object in the wall turns off the alarm. According to the patent, the user will be able to create the bundles of gestures and actions for their electronics, so the only limitation is fantasy.
How it works
AT The patent states that for the stable operation of the system, 4 elements are needed: a radio transmitter, an antenna, a signal processor and transceiver. Well and software that will make them dance in one rhythm. As SlashGear writes, this is actually the same combination as in camera True Depth.
True, the new Google patent refers us to development that began in 2014, long before iPhone X. A little later this work resulted in project on electronics management gestures Soil. So now very understandable, plans whether Google to introduce new technologies in the the next generation of Android Wear watches or it will be something cardinal new.
