Head-tracking

  • While there already are body movement-tracking systems, many incorporate cumbersome wearables, or require the person to move about in front of cameras. A new technology, however, gets the job done simply using threads placed flat against the skin.
  • For those with disabilities who are unable to use a mouse or a touchscreen, mass-produced devices can become more of a hindrance than a help. This is why a Turkish designer says he came up with GlassOuse, which puts the capabilities of a mouse on a pair of glasses.
  • Umoove has developed innovative face tracking technology that allows users to navigate a game on their iOS device just by facing in the direction they want to go. The Umoove Experience app that demonstrates the technology is available for free from the iTunes store.
