>> Project Soli - Google's gesture-control tech for touchless interactions!

Google is working on 'Project Soli' for some time now!

* Soli is a new sensing technology that uses miniature radar to detect touchless gesture interactions.
* It is a purpose-built interaction sensor that uses radar for motion tracking of the human hand.
* The sensor tracks sub-millimeter motion at high speeds with great accuracy.

Kinds of interactions Google is developing:
Imagine an invisible button between your thumb and index fingers – you can press it by tapping your fingers together.
Or a Virtual Dial that you turn by rubbing thumb against index finger.
Or grabbing and pulling a Virtual Slider in thin air.

So instead of controlling a smartdevice by tapping on a display, for instance, you could quickly rub or tap your fingers together!
