ring_se posted a topic in General and Gameplay ProgrammingDear game developers, I am a student at a University in Sweden involved in a research project for a [b]new Natural User Interface for gaming applications[/b]. We are researchers developing a [b]finger ring[/b] [b]that embeds several micro sensors[/b] (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.[list] [*]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? [/list] We think that this device open up new possibilities for interactions with [b]PC games[/b] and in [b]smartphone/tablet game areas too![/b] Thank you and wait to hear for your great thoughts and comments!
