The Samsung C-Lab startup incubator have come up with ‘SelfieType’ technology, which will allow users to type on any surface. The development will be officially presented at CES 2020.
Samsung developers have always thought creatively. This time they amazed and impressed users with a completely new way of typing, which is embodied in SelfieType technology. Samsung’s ‘SelfieType’ aims to let you type on an invisible keyboard.
The idea is to use a smartphone’s front camera to track user actions. Artificial intelligence analyses the movements of the fingers of the gadget owner and interprets them into the finished text. This means that now you can type on almost any surface without touching the screen of the device. The key though is that the users’ hands must remain in the field of view of the camera.
Nevertheless, among the current glitches are the lack of sound or tactile feedback from the ‘keyboard.’ However, if Samsung developers manage to solve these issues, then we’ll get a much more convenient way to type on a smartphone.
