Elliptic Labs 3D gesture-sensing dock

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on December 22nd, 2010

The iPad is great, but the one thing it doesn’t have is the ability to recognize gestures. That would sure come in handy when in the kitchen making recipes, so you can keep your screen smudge free. Elliptic Labs to the rescue.

The company has been working on its 3D gesture interface for years and it is finally ready to show off an actual product in the form of a motion-sensing iPad dock prototype making its debut at CES in a few weeks. It gives you full control without having to touch your device at all.

Microsoft adds a new twist to handhelds

Microsoft adds a new twist to handhelds
Are you content with simple multi-touch and built-in accelerometers? Microsoft Research thinks not. In fact they’re already working hard in the labs, toward integrating force-sensing technology. The kind of thing that will enable gestures and let you twist on-screen imagery without making UMPCs out of flexible material.

Those behind the idea feel that such tech would “turn an otherwise passive component that just holds the device together into an active input surface.” Auditory cues might even enable users to be alerted when they’ve applied enough pressure to cause a change. I just figure it’s a great way to play Rubik’s Cube in the future.
