SAN FRANCISCO – Google showed at its annual developer conference a 60 GHz device that acts as a radar-on-chip for controlling with gestures small-screen devices. The technology isn’t yet authorized by the FCC, but Google’s ATAP research team believes its Soli will find use in wearables. “We propose to use the vocabulary of hand motions for [device] interactions," creating a generic input device that eliminates the need to interact with a smartphone,” said Project Lead Ivan Poupyrev in a talk at Google I/O here. “It doesn’t have to be a virtual touch pad...your hand can become a variety of controls -- a virtual dial, a slider,” he said. The team has developed two Soli chips, a 9mm 2 device using pulse radar an 11mm 2 chip using continuous signal radar. Both run at 60 GHz with sub-millimeter accuracy. Soli’s radar can illuminate a hand with a broad beam, then treat the recei...
