The end in the quest for the remote control of television, which everyone is constantly losing is here. After the gestures and body movements that can interact with a screen, a new even more revolutionary technology turns any object, such as an ashtray or a cup, into a remote control to control the TV and other monitors.
British researchers at Lancaster University’s Computer and Communications School will present the new technology called Matchpoint at UIST 2017 (User Interface Software and Technology) in Quebec, Canada in October.
The new technology, which simply requires an online camera in terms of equipment, is an extension of existing gesture control technology. Instead of shaking hands or heads to “communicate” with a screen, the new technology allows changing a TV channel or changing its sound by simply moving up or down or left-right an object (even the plastic toy of the child which is left in the living room!).
Unlike existing gesture control technology, Matchpoint software not only looks for some body part that is programmed to recognize. Any movement of an object is enough to command a screen of a device, such as a television, a flip player, a tablet computer or an electronic panel.
This allows more flexibility for the user, who does not need to jump in front of a screen, but can be lying on the couch and adjusting his TV with the first thing he finds right in front of him.
