touch the future

ATAP, Google’s Advanced Technologies and Projects group just unveiled a super-cool chipset called Soli. Soli detects and responds to the tiniest of finger gestures using radio waves. And since it’s radar-like on a chip, not line of site, it means it can receive input data through other objects, meaning it can be embedded inside other things – from your watch to your coffee maker – enabling you control actions with simple movements. The IoT (internet of things) market is expected to grow to 50 billion devices by 2015 (Cisco) and Soli looks to be the disruptive tech to control it all. The ATAP team expects to deliver a prototype board and software API to developers later this year.
