Use The Force: 3 cool motion controlled gadgetsTechList The List
A gunslinger, secret agent and a ninja are all cool, but a Jedi kicks all their butts because they can control stuff with a swipe of their hand. Now all of us can feel like one thanks to some cool gadgets. Jimmy Rhoades has three products that will bring The Force to your home.
Waking up has never been as easy thanks to this cool invention. With one move you can stop your alarm. The Bixi app pairs Bluetooth enabled devices with its gesture-detecting remote, then you use seven intuitive hand signals to control everything from your phone, to smart lighting and even your GoPro. Pick one up for around $79.
2. FIBARO Swipe
Aside from making wickedly funny promotional videos, Fibaro makes the Swipe, a gesture-detecting control pad that can be mounted as a frame, or even hidden behind walls, wallpaper or under tables… making your device-controlling skills look truly magical. Pick one up for around $150.
Eyesight Technology's Singlecue knows how to speak with each device, so channels will be controlled in the cable box, but the volume will be controlled by your home sound system. All you need to do is this minuscule movement with your hand. It's actually meant for you to lean back, relax, and raise your finger very gently. Pick one up for around $149.
