Now that we stand on the threshold of virtual and augmented reality, with the appearance of new spaces where we can live all kinds of experiences, the Gest glove is looking to become a true revolution in the control of virtual objects.
The glove is made up of 15 sensors in each finger and is capable of, rather impressively, replacing traditional keyboards as we “type” in the air. It does so by intuiting what we are writing, using the “relative movement of fingers to understand what the user is typing”, but with time it is capable of learning the personal typing style of each user.
This, however, is only its first contact with the virtual world; its true objective is to allow us to interact with and control, as we mentioned above, virtual objects by using hand gestures that are completely natural to all users.
Its creators wish to market it in 2016.
