Project White Glove
I recently got an Oculus Quest, maybe not recently but like last year, and even using the passthrough/handsfree gets me excited. It got me started to think about the current devices I use and how interact with them when it comes to controlling things.
Whenever I watch a movie like Her or a show like Black Mirror I’m always so jealous of the technology in these futuristic movies and how natural and fluid they seem/integrate with the surrounding environments. Hand gestures and muffled voices are picked up and understood immediately by these AI and computers and then they do exactly what the user thinks. With a slight grunt and wave of the wand and the main character's workspace clears itself and shuts down. Taking in the context of what the user is doing and then performing the correct task based on the same gesture that could be used for something else is really interesting.
Looking at the STEM player and the mouse I think there’s an interesting intersection on how we can manipulate inputs and stuff. I think the physical component would be incredible and could even have voice commands.
- Something that heavily resembles the YEEZY STEM PLAYER and acts as a gesture-based mouse.
- The camera looks up through the middle to capture hand movements.
- Would require an environmental sensor for light detection.
