electric field sensing device

Created by Northeastern University researchers Justin Schunick, Mark Hollenbeck, Luke Shaheen, Scott Gillette and Glenn Black, the 3D Computer Interface is able to detect the x, y and z coordinates of a hand moving above it. This sensing device provides very accurate reading, doesn’t require the user to hold a controller or attach any markers to her body, and uses an array of simple sensors made out of copper plate. The researchers demonstrate how it can be used to manipulate 3D objects and a midi controlled, but it’s easy to imagine a million other applications.
