Disney Research invents ‘touch interaction’ to control computers and objects
May 8, 2012
Disney Research has developed Touché, a new “touch interaction” sensing technology for using gestures and touch to control computing devices and everyday objects.
Touché uses a novel Swept Frequency Capacitive Sensing technique that can detect a touch event and simultaneously recognize complex configurations of the human hands and body during touch interaction.
