Samsung's SelfieType is an invisible AI keyboard for your phone
Desktops and laptops have changed shapes and sizes over the years.
One thing that's remained the same as when the keyboard, maybe I will change that here, thanks to Samsung silat we have an invisible AI keyboard called the Selfie Type.
Selfie Type is a research project from Samsung solar Cielab is essentially an internal incubator for Samsung.
The company gives us employees one year to work on projects.
Sometimes these materialized into products other times they don't.
Sufi type has been in the works for almost a year.
Here's how it works.
It takes a selfie camera of a new phone say the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and uses AI technology to map your joints and translate finger movements, indicators.
Crucially and unlike similar invisible keyboard attempts of the past, it responds to the way your joints move and not where your fingers physically pushed down.
I got the chance to have a hands on demo here at CS.
And while it's certainly in early stages, it actually works reasonably well.
Right now, it's designers say they need more data on different types of typing styles, which was evident in my trial.
For instance, I use my left pinky less than the average typer.
And my hands are pretty big which also affected results.
But the foundation of a working system certainly seems to be there.
For now, this is just a research project.
So it's probably not gonna be on the Samsung Galaxy S11 but maybe you can cross your fingers for the S12.
