3D Control Without Touch or Cameras: Behind the Scenes of a DIY Electrostatic Interface

The need for spatial, 3D interfaces is prompting students and inventors to try some creative and economical solutions. Earlier this week, we saw a touch-free, gestural interface built entirely on the principles of electrostatic – yes, as in static electricity. (See the original story, with video.) Justin Schunick of the team at Northeastern University wrote […]

Touch-Free, Gestural Interface, Powered by Electrostatics

3D Computer Interface from Free Flow on Vimeo. During long winters with indoor heat running overtime, I imagine you’ve built up your fair amount of static electricity, and as the sparks fly, wondered why you couldn’t put that power to some good use. Working with electrostatics, a team of students at Northeastern University in Boston […]
