Tech Tuesday: Google Getting Handsy

Its no question that Google is a company filled with innovation and forward-thinking design that is unparalleled in its industry; they aren't just a search engine, but an engine for change. Not to get too historical, but IBM used to make so much money that they could hire and fund projects for pure scientific discovery and no profit at all. Google isn't doing quite that, but they are creating the future of computer UI in multiple projects that seem almost out of this world. Project Jacquard is working to create smart clothing fibers so that your favorite pair of jeans can also be used as an interface for your phone without having to take it out of your pocket. Project Soli is a less mobile option, but using radio frequency waves, their revolutionary sensor can detect hand gestures on unprecedented level of accuracy that allows for next level interaction with all of your technology, from your thermostat to your computer! Both projects are being led by the same amazing brain, Ivan Poupyrev, so be on the lookout for these amazing creations!
