Making your own hand a controller is probably everyone’s dream, including players , forced to use the most varied interfaces to interact with their devices. But the revolution is around the corner with Tactigon Skin, a gesture controller with artificial intelligence patented and realized by a startup of Inzago, in the province of Milan, the Next Industries.
Presented at Ces
in Las Vegas, the world’s leading trade fair dedicated to technology, this controller promises a real revolution. A platform that can host several apps for controlling robots, computers, goggles for augmented reality and virtual reality. Obviously the preferred field for this controller is that of the Gaming, but you can also get complete control of Printers 3D, of pc, maybe for presentations in Power point, or still can be used for the Machine Learning, that is to teach a robot to move to learn certain useful movements in the industry 4.0.
Tactigon Skin is equipped with a software development kit compatible with Arduino, susceptible, therefore, of changes of various kinds. The heart of this device is a card that allows connectivity Of the device, then low power consumption of Energy, and a parterre of sensors 9 DoF (degrees of Liberty), which includes, therefore, an acceleration sensor, a gyroscope and a magnetometer, all three capable of recording accelerations on the three axes. All in one board of about 5×1, 5 cm which includes a 32-bit microcontroller with bootloader Arduino, a charging circuit for a 150mAh LiPo cell supplied with the card and equipped with temperature control and charging voltage, a COMMUNICATION system BLE 4.0, an expansion connector Gpio and a connector type Grove.
