SoundWave: New Gestural Interface using inaudable sound waves
Microsoft's latest technology allows users to control their computers via gestures that are evaluated based on sound. It requires a microphone and speaker to work, as the SoundWave system emits a constant inaudible tone that is altered by hand movements in front of the computer.
Is this technology redundant due to their own Kinect technology or do we believe in it just for the sake of research itself?
