Monday materials fun – the father of gesture-sensing technologyPublished on January 17th, 2011 | By: email@example.com
Microsoft’s Kinect technology looks like a success, and it looks like Apple and other groups close to Apple are going to tease us with rumors about remote gesture controls in the next version of the iPad, but let’s not forget that gesture-sensing tech was born with proximity sensor research in the 1919-1920 period, the best known application being the musical instrument developed by physicist Lev Sergevich Termen (a.k.a. Leon Theremin).
(I couldn’t find a date of this film, but obviously pretty old.)
A video of the last Terpsitone in action is available here.
