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.
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.”
