>> 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!

>> Your time on Facebook/Instagram?

* In the Facebook app (only) on iOS and Android, you can find “Your Time on Facebook”.
To check the same, navigate to More --> Settings and Privacy, then scroll down to 'Your Time on Facebook'.
Will get a bar graph of the week, with your usage time per day, including the average amount of time you spent each day.

* On Instagram app (only), go to More --> Settings --> Your Activity

Currently, the numbers in the bar graph indicate only how much time you spend on Facebook or Instagram apps on that single device. And no desktop data available for now.
