Sensor data from touch, gestures and audio commands can enhance the gaming experience.

 

Intel Free Press story: Sensors Poised to Transform User Experience. Touch, voice, GPS and motion detection expand device capabilities.

Several fire departments in Oregon are piloting this baseball-sized "metal fireball" created by Intel Labs. When thrown into a burning building, its sensors can detect temperature, noxious gases or dangerous chemicals before firefighters enter.

The USB-connected Personal Office Energy Management device (the little black box pictured on top of the laptop) is equipped with sensors that measure and monitor energy use from users' laptops. Office managers use that data to measure energy use within a building.

The haptic controls guide your cursor along rings on the screen, though you can also 'jump out' of the ring and 'click' to active screen buttons. The haptic feedback is all about the navigation, not the object - I'd been expecting some kind of experience of touching the object, but it's just an interface for hypertext-style navigation.

"I can work with the tabletop as if I'm working on the touchscreen itself although the device is somewhere else," said Vivayak Honkote, research scientist, Intel Labs.

Could Any Surface Be Your Touchscreen?

Tabletop is transformed into touchscreen interface for any mobile device.

 

Let's say you walk into a bar or a coffee shop, order a drink and then sit down to check your Twitter feed, find a location on a map, flick through photos or play a game. All fairly standard activities, but what if you could do all that on the tabletop in front of you without ever taking your smartphone or tablet out of your pocket?

 

In the future, a tabletop, or any other surface, could become the touchscreen for your mobile device by connecting wirelessly to a tiny camera and projector. Research scientist Vivayak Honkote and his team from Intel Labs demonstrated the experimental technology at the 11th annual Research at Intel event in San Francisco.

Sensors detect and interpret common human gestures.
