Samsung Patents Gesture Control Technology For Wearable Devices


New patents from Samsung show the company may release a smartwatch device that could interpret mid-air hand gestures and much more.

The patents posted at United States Patent and Trademark Office's web site describe a smartwatch equipped with sensors to accept interface options. These include a touch sensor built into the wristband, a processor to interpret mid-air gestures made in front of the camera, even the ability to recognise specific movements made with the hand the wearable is on.

The patent refers to "a rotatable element about the touch-sensitive display" suggesting that the watch's bezel could be an interface device. Finger movements could be also recognized through cameras.

A gesture recognition function is smart enough to determine what movement it should pay the most attention to, while demanding data processing could be also passed to a separate computing device, prsumably a smartphone or a tablet.

Two additional intersting features are described. The first one allows the wearable device to recognize and process images and objects including barcodes and text. The second relates to the sensor which monitors your pulse.

The patent was initially filed back in August 2013.
