Gest Controller

H/T: Kickstarter

Say goodbye to the traditional keyboard + mouse combo, and hello to Gest, a Minority Report-inspired glove that enables users to control their computer display using hand motions. It’s comprised of a main band, finger extensions that are designed to fit like a glove and 15 different sensors, including accelerometers, gyroscopes, as well as magnetometers. These work in conjunction to produce a smartphone-like experience instead of acting as a motion capture system. You can switch between apps by just twitching your finger, or simply pointing at the display to move the mouse around. Gest does not require need complex algorithms, since it relies on sensors instead of a camera, thus is capable of processing movements more quickly and reliably. Best of all, developers can make use of Gest’s DevKit API to produce applications that fit their needs, and in real-time. Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
