Gesture-recognizing watch strap lets its wearer fly a drone

The technology could conceivably also be incorporated into bracelets, or perhaps even adhesive skin patches Although there are already systems that allow us to control devices via hand gestures, they typically either rely upon visual sensors such as cameras, or they utilize accelerometers and gyroscopes. Scientists from Swiss research center Empa, however, have devised a new technology that goes about gesture control in a different way – it’s integrated into a normal-looking watch strap, and it’s already been used to control a drone. Developed by a team led by Frank Clemens, the strap contains 3D-printed fibers that are piezoresistive. […]
