Habetx”: a new technique designed to dispense with computer mouse




New technical work to turn any surface into a three-dimensional haptic surface

The Taliban reached the Chinese to innovate new technology said it will change the way we interact with computers, where this technique to turn any surface into a tactile three-dimensional space so lets dispense with using the mouse. Has launched a “Darren Lim (20 years) and” no zu “(21 years) on Kickstarter campaign to raise $ 100,000 to finance the production of the technical device which opened” habetx “Haptix.

The authors reviewed the innovation in video how “habetx” can turn any surface into a tactile surface to control the cursor on your computer by a small image sensor can track the movement of the hand and fingers to control computers or television or any other screen.

And not only the task of “habetx” to move the cursor, but also uses the technique of three-dimensional motion sensor so that it can estimate the distance between the fingers and the surface, and thus allows the user to see the position of your finger on the screen by touching the surface, this provides a manner similar to the method using mouse and touch pad together in traditional laptops.

Although a number of projects that tried to develop similar techniques, to “habetx”-by institutional-a major difference which differs in no dependence on IR, which means higher accuracy and more sensitive in picking up the correct movements, though depends on infrared as well as in performing certain tasks.

The project finds that idea may play a big role in how our interaction with technology, an alternative may be entirely using the mouse.

Video reviews published by the authors of the project, how do you convert a table to the surface once the haptic device like routing and how you can use the table surface for touch control. Additionally you can use different fingers to perform different functions, for example the middle finger can be used to control the cursor, and the index finger to simulate clicking the left button of the mouse.

The project currently supports both Windows and Ubuntu, but the developing work to support Android and “x” smart TVs, and the device will be sold by 65 dollars.

Stated that the developed aim to collect $ 100,000 a month to finance the production of the device and put on the market.
