Remember that touchless touch interface? Here's another take on an alternative way to control your devices, and this one looks like it will give your wrist a real workout.
KEYnetik has a prototype handheld that's designed to be controlled with only one hand, and be completely ambidextrous. It has a joystick for your thumb and four buttons along its spine for each of your fingers, but the real trick is the dual motion sensing. Anyone with an iPhone will be pretty familiar with a lot of its features, such as automatically rotating the screen depending on the orientation, but KEYnetik is taking the technology a step further by allowing you to navigate through menus by flicking your wrist. The technology is being adapted for general use, media control and even gaming.
Want to try it out for yourself? The company has developed a program called “RockNScroll” that will work on a Nokia N95, thanks to its built-in 3-axis accelerometer.
