The new device being developed by computer scientists will work as a wireless receiver and will need no battery

Most of us would be swooning over an idea of having a device which allows us to manage something with just the wave of our hands in the air. Such a concept is being put forward by the gadget AllSee which is still under its development stage. It is part of a project undertaken by computer scientists at the University of Washington and here we must not forget to mention that this device is being built by the same geniuses who were behind the gesture-recognition in the Galaxy Nexus. For those who don’t exactly know what this is, the tiny sensor is not going to function in the typical way like most of them do on devices like the Galaxy S5. Such devices need the use of the forward-facing camera to perform any recognition task.

Defying this concept is the new AllSee which will make use of TV signals to not only help it recognize gestures, but also as exceptionally efficient source power. The best part is that no battery is required for this to operate and even when your phone is out of sight, you can still see your movements. AllSee does this by acting like a wireless receiver so that when you move around your hands in the air, the signals get disrupted in the air and they are recognized and given a particular meaning (command).

 

All this sounds like some luxury device for which hundreds of dollars will have to be spent or maybe even more. But wait till you get surprised after hearing that all this will be done at a price less than a buck.
