FAQ


Is Gesture Remote for sale?

The Gesture Remote video demonstrates a prototype of a TV controller that utilizes Microchip Technology’s patented GestIC® technology. GestIC ® is a revolutionary user interface that offers three dimensional position tracking and gesture recognition, which means no contact is required at all. The underlying electrical field sensor technology for GestIC ® – including signal processing and gesture recognition capability –enables a completely new dimension for manufacturers to develop truly innovative consumer products for gaming, computing, TV peripherals and remote controllers like the Gesture Remote . If you’d like to know more and keep updated on the progress of this technology, contact us at GestICconcept [at] microchip.com.

Is technical information on GestIC available, e.g. technical principle, range, requirements etc.?

Microchip Technology’s patented GestIC ® gesture control technology enables detection and tracking of hand, finger or any body movement to control consumer products without needing to touch a screen or a keyboard. This adds a completely new dimension in the user interface of mobile and consumer electronics, allowing users to interact with their devices using only gestures of the hand or finger.

GestIC ® is a revolutionary new user interface offering three dimensional contact free position tracking and gesture recognition. It measures relative 3D position and 3D movement detection, direction and velocity. This technology exploits the ability of the human body to influence a minor electric field near any product which utilizes our GestIC ® sensors.
