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.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
