Snap Company and Columbia University scientists have presented a case to control your smartphone. Curiously, it is not connected to the device either through wired or wireless communication.
The main part of the case is a measuring device that reacts to the slightest movement of the gadget. It does not use any GPS or accelerometer: it is controlled by pressing a button, moving the wheel or the switch located on the case itself.
These actions are interpreted into commands by a special application. The case does not require charging and performs very well under any weather conditions. Another of its advantages is that it is impact-resistant to withstand drops and rough treatment, and it protects the phone from damage, just as would be expected of any phone case. The controls are conveniently located on the back panel without blocking the gadget’s screen.
The device can be easily adapted for left-handers, cheap to manufacture and easy to repair. So far, the likelihood of false activation is high, but in the future, such devices may become very popular.
