I hope this gesture interface is not as cumbersome to use like the Leap motion, Kinect, and projector interfaces. I find I am tensing up my muscles too much in the useless effort to correct those HMIs. It's actually tiring. This, I hope, fairs better.
"The technology supporting those glasses has transitioned over to everyday objects that can be used without wearing unappealing eyewear. For example, a Los Angeles smart space installation uses a digitally augmented table and book that allows visitors to use hand gestures to explore digital media."
Cabe, such hand gestures are already in use with commercial devices like smart TV and home automation systems. I hope the technology will be get flourished and widely accepted across industry, so that controlling becomes more easier.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
