This chip can detect small motion of our hand like, swiping side of the thumb on the index finger will lead to rising or low of a volume, and swiping up and down will be used in scrolling. The thumb and index finger together tapping will judge the pressing of a button.
Ivan Poupyrev said that companies like Leap Motion or Intel already use this gesture technology in camera’s, but this are cumbersome and require additional hardware. So, Google invented this mini chip that can be just embedded inside any device. "It is improbable how simple is radar emitted chip, it has no camera tracking, you may placed soli wherever you want" he said.
Due to soli's compatible size, it can be embedded in any device you want. Soli's gesture technology is a step forward towards a future of touch-less interactions with devices.
