- Users can input private data securely using augmented reality.
- They can control things around them easily with a few gestures of their hands.
- Wearable devices can be easily controlled.
- The platform can help in making wearable devices helpful not only for work but also for play.
Users will be able to frame and click photos by waving their hands. They can control payment transactions by using their hand as a keypad for entering their PIN. With augmented reality, slider controls can be overlaid on the fingers of the users, using which they can control complex factory machinery.
Who will be benefitted?
Manufacturers, developers or integrators and users will be benefitted with this software toolkit. Let us have a look at how this platform can be used by different people.
