It seems that the intricacies of technology are only speeding up, and every day we get closer to the sci-fi future predicted in so many novels and movies.
In a recent video from Google, we got a look into what that future might look like. Google introduced a new product called Project Soli, which uses radar technology to detect movements to such a detailed degree that you can use subtle finger movements to control it.
It might look something like this:
The technology can capture 10,000 frames per second, an unprecedented level of information processing to be put into such a small chip.
“What is most exciting about it is that you can shrink the entire radar and put it into a tiny chip,” Ivan Poupyrev, Project Soli Founder, said in a YouTube video. “That’s what makes this approach so promising: it’s extremely reliable. There is nothing to break, no moving part, no lenses, just a piece of sand on a board.”
