Kai isn’t meant to replace a keyboard or a mouse but to augment them. Kai’s design allows you to work on keyboard or mouse easily while wearing Kai. Kai allows you to perform certain actions intuitively which are painstakingly time-consuming on other interaction devices.
Yes! We created the Kai to be mindful of a professional working environment, where a person is seated in front of a workstation/laptop. As Kai doesn’t rely on a camera, the person can keep his hand in a comfortable position (Eg armrest) and perform gestures with intuitive short movements accurately.
No, Kai doesn’t need an external camera to detect the gestures. Kai is designed in a smart way which allows it to track hand as well as finger movements in the device itself. Thus, Kai is a standalone device and is very versatile and portable.
By not using camera we solve the following problems
Range - the need to keep your arms where visible Environment sensitivity - lighting conditions effect on image recognition Processing Overhead - Image recognition involves significant processing power and this requires additional hardware.
