The technology behind Gesture RemoteGesture Remote uses GestIC® technology from Microchip Technology to detect and track hand, finger, or body movement. This makes it possible to control products without needing to touch a screen, trackpad, or keyboard. GestIC® technology adds a completely new dimension to internet and multimedia user interfaces by allowing users to interact with their devices using only hand or finger gestures.
GestIC® technology enables a revolutionary new user interface by offering three-dimensional, contact-free position tracking and gesture recognition. It is unique in its ability to measure not only 3D position, but also the direction and velocity of movement in 3D space.
