Hey everyone I'm Jessica Dolcourt for C Net at the [INAUDIBLE] developer conference here in San Francisco.
What I've got is a demo here of gesture control on a regular, ordinary Samsung Gear two smart watch.
So, Samsung's research team out of Spain has put gesture control on this device and with it you can play a game, you can turn music volume up or down, you can maybe turn on and off the light switches, air conditioning, that sort of thing.
So it's pretty simple.
You basically engage the app that you wanna use, you tap on the screen, make a very clear, decided motion and return to the start position.
And that tells whatever app contextually that you're working with that you want to fulfill that task.
So for an example, we're gonna play a little game.
It's called Evil Fish.
So to play the game, I start.
The fish goes down, my wrist does down, and back up to the start position and I have knocked him out.
Take that you evil fish.
I am really good at this game.
Apparently, today apart from developers and apart from the engineers, I am the only person who's played this game.
So, in the future their going to add pushing and pulling, but for right now we've just got the four directions, North, South, East and West.
I want them to add actual punching.
So right now i am in the music player remote.
I tap the screen.
I make my movements, the right to either turn on the song or advance it if it's done.
And press the screen again and raise my arms to increase the volume.
I can also lower my arms to decrease the volume.
And if i want to stop, I just tap the screen.
And I move my arms from left and then back to start position.
Once again this is all in preview phase right now.
When are we going to see the technology in real devices like the Gear 2?
We don't know yet, but hopefully soon.
I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET.
