New Empa 3D printed sensor device lets you control drones with the wave of a hand

Researchers at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) have developed a new device that lets you control a drone with simple hand gestures. Designed to be easy and intuitive, the new Empa innovation works through 3D printing and original sensor technology: a wave to the left, and the drove moves to the left; a wave to the right, the drone moves to the right. While a straightforward concept, the development process was far from simple. Headed by Frank Clemens from Empa’s Laboratory for High-Performance Ceramics, the sensor is made of piezo-resistive fibers incorporated into a […]
