I am a student at a University in Sweden involved in a research project for a new Natural User Interface for gaming applications. We are researchers developing a finger ring that embeds several micro sensors (as a bundle of accelerometers, gyroscope and magnetometer) combined with a Bluetooth/wifi communication protocol.
This finger ring has similar characteristics as the smartphone sensors -but packaged in a normal finger ring- and can track the position of a user's finger/hand in 3d space, together with the information about acceleration and orientation.
This new device can be used with any bluetooth receiver, as a PC or smartphone.
- Would you developer be interested in such a device for creating new interactive applications?
- And how would you use such an innovative device?
- Would you like to use it for PC and/or for smartphone?
Thank you and wait to hear for your great thoughts and comments!
