The man behind Tesla, SpaceX, and the Hyperloop now wants to revolutionize manufacturing.
A software company out of Israel has come up with a gesture controller that offers a seamless way to control 3D objects on your computer, like Google Earth, with your existing webcam.
4tiitoo's new NUIA eyeCharm add-on teaches Microsoft's Kinect a new trick.
Tony Stark wannabes are freaking out right now. No, seriously, f-r-e-a-k-i-n-g out.
Tobii’s eyeball-controllable computer tech is going to launch soon. It's going to be slick, and it's just as incredible as we remembered from last year.
Tobii has new fancy gaze-tracking glasses. Say hello to the REX.
This is a metal ball. It levitates. In midair. You can move it around however you want and then let go of it, and it'll just stick there, defying both gravity and common sense. The MIT Media Lab has worked this into an interface that lets both you and a computer communicate through the manipulation of physical objects. Flying objects!
The 30th annual Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems is going on right now in Texas, and it looks like Microsoft is there in force. It's showing off five new concepts in human computer interaction, from body part projection to sound wave control to motion-capturing antennas made of people.
Until Kinect and Tobii get miniaturized enough to fit into a laptop that won't crush your femurs into calcium supplements, a startup called Flutter offers a simple way to control music and movie playback with hand gestures using even a webcam as terrible as the one in a netbook.
When we checked out Tobii's eye-tracking magic back at CES, we were blown away by how well it worked, but the hardware was prohibitively bulky. Tobii's new IS-2 module is smaller, cheaper, and ready for manufacturers to shove into (almost) anything you want to control with your eyeballs.
