Motion technology is a hot area right now, and it’s quickly changing. With the Xbox Kinect being the first to the table with wireless motion detection and then the new Samsung S4 having motion detecting abilities, everyone now wants in. Good news, a company has now developed a software that will bring motion detection to ANY device.
An Oslo, Norway-based startup, Elliptic Labs, has launched a software development kit and hardware proof-of-concept of a new way of controlling your smartphone or tablet — with simple touchless gestures. The company says it has major Asian smartphone manufacturers onboard for shipping products next year, is demoing the product at CEATEC in Tokyo today, and is already playing Fruit Ninja and Subway Surfer on an Android phone as if it was an Xbox Kinect game.
