Touchscreen technology is advancing towards greater levels of interaction. We have already covered a few examples of the idea of gesture control, where users can, interact with autonomous cars or turn on the TV by simply waving their hand. However, now researchers in Germany have gone one step further and have developed a new method of gesture control powered by the Earth itself. The researchers, based in the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), have developed an e-skin (electronic-skin) wearable that turns the Earth’s magnetic field into a signal. The wearable is a few thin strips of permalloy (a magnetic alloy of iron and nickel),…
