Gesture technology systems

Overview

Gesture control devices have been picking up some steam in the market. The idea of being able to control your smart devices ( whether it’s your phone, AR/VR googles or watch) really allows the user to be hands free. The idea is to allow ones hand/arm finger motions to control a user interface without physical manipulation of a touchscreen or physical control. It is beneficial when hands free is a requirement while offering basic navigation but the drawbacks is most people are unfamiliar with the gestures. It requiring training and users has to retain the knowledge of the gestures.
