Bixi is a small hexagonal device that was first announced at CES is a device that claims to be able to track your “defined” gestures to control all the connected devices including tablets, smartphones, and other smart devices like Wireless Speakers. At present the firm is running a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter.com which is crowd funding platform for small firms to collect funds for any viable project.
Loved the way Tony Stark played with his computer devices by just airing his hand and who can forget Tom Cruise doing the same in Mission Impossible series! Controlling your smart devices with gestures is a cool quotient for now.
Although we have few products like the Leap Motion and the Kinect, even the Playstation Gear is there but all these are not that much capable of providing us the ease we have been looking for long to replace our touchscreen, keyboard and mouse inputs.
Now, following the same track we have one new contender to the Gesture Controller race and its name is Bixi which is a cute looking small hexagonal device which claims to be able to control all the connected devices including tablets, smartphones, and other smart devices like Wireless Speakers. Originally announced at the CES 2016, Bixi is now running a crowd funding campaign on the crowd funding website, Kickstarter.com to avail funds. The demo video provided by the firm there on Kickstarter shown various “futuristic” implications of the same that included people activating their GoPro while riding their bike, adjusting music volume while being in a shower, or flipping pages on their Kindle devices.
But does all this really have a future?
Would you be able to recognize every gesture you map in the device, as you surely would be using it for every other thing on which you first used physical inputs? Would you be able to do that?
No one can as remembering all that is really tiresome and mixing up various gestures in an emergency is another add-on which will surely inculcate this thing.
Who knows you want to switch on your Television and the other moment your toaster pops out some fresh toasts for you just because you messed up the gestures in your mind!
But even if you give this a shot then you can head to Kickstarter listing off the same and pay 79$ to get hands over it!
I’ll better stick with my keyboard, mouse and touch inputs, they love me!
Ps: Happy Diwali To Everyone Out there!
