'Bird' Interactive Remote Control
Ever since Tom Cruise popularised interactive hand gesture displays in Minority Report (2002), many of us have imagined conjuring up images with the swipe of a hand to explain our ideas or sell a concept. With Bird from Muv, we get to do it. Even boring presentations can have an added dimension to distract from their content.
The sleek remote control attaches to your finger, with an accelerometer and sensors to detect movement, location, orientation, force, and proximity to objects, triggering interactions with digital displays. Point, swipe, pinch and tap to create interactive demonstrations using these gesture-based controls.
Elevator pitches can now be enhanced, by projecting images onto the elevator door.
Bird’s motion and direction sensors also pair with smart gadgets in the household. For instance, change the air-conditioner temperature, answering phone calls or adjusting lighting, TV settings and music tracks - from up to 100 feet away. You can apparently even fly a drone with your finger, as well as set up a virtual screen to be used as a canvas for children to digitally draw on walls.
So next time someone’s not listening to your presentation in a meeting, give them the Bird.
