The Covid-19 has forced all of us to maintain social distancing from each other. The guidelines ask us not to touch surfaces that are resent in public spaces. These surfaces include lift buttons, doorbells, cab doors, and more. This has given tech companies all over the world to focus more on innovation. A Singapore-based innovation studio, Stuck Design, has come out with a new ‘touchless’ technology that can be revolutionary in the future.
This touchless technology impersonates the pressing of a button without actually pressing it! How cool is that, right? This technology will help people to minimize physical contact with any kind of surface.
In these Covid-19 times, this will surely see a huge demand. With the aid of motion sensors, this technology detects finger movements. No matter what the gesture is, pushing or pulling or sliding, this technology can mimic all in a physical manner.
The company said,
“With contactless interactions on the rise in the face of COVID-19, most touchless tech tends towards a static sensor with light or buzz to indicate an activated button, greatly diminishing the push-button interaction. By going beyond the expected feedback of light and sound, Kinetic Touchless provides a surprisingly delightful and yet newly familiar way to interact with contactless technology.” The claims put in by the company are bold but can they really market their product to everyone? And, what after when there is no more Covid-19 pandemic and no social distancing is required?
The company aims to bring human contact to contactless tech with this technology. With the trend of how innovations are disrupting every sector, whether it smartphone or Television, we see this technology hit the ground sometime in the future. They have already a prototype and willing to entice customers with the youtube video given below.
