Huawei aims to make touch-free smartphones

Posted on Monday, April 30 2012 @ 21:14:24 CEST by


ComputerWorld reports Huawei will increase R&D spending by up to 20 percent from last year. One of the things the company wants to focus on are touch-free smartphones, as well as infinite cloud storage:
Roese, who spoke to journalists on Friday, manages a research and development staff of 1,000 employees in North America, and was a former CTO for Nortel. One technology the company has been working on is touch-free smartphones, allowing the devices to read users' hand gestures in order to initiate commands.

"What if you use the camera of a tablet or a smartphone and use it to capture the visualization of your hands," he said. "So imagine instead of touching a smartphone, you can actually have a three-dimensional interaction with it."

Touchscreen smartphones and tablets currently allow for the use of several fingers to issue certain commands when pressed on the display. But users only have five fingers on a hand, limiting the number of commands that can be made, Roese said. Using hand gestures, however, would allow users to more easily bring objects forward, push them back or rotate them within the smartphone's graphical user interface, he said.
