New 3D Flow Controller for Mouse Replacement
Senic startup is trying to change our understanding of computer management. Instead of a mouse, they suggest using a new unusual Flow controller. He can track four types of manipulations: pressing (like a button), around it is a cylindrical rotating “belt” of metal (like volume control), it has a touch surface, and most interestingly - with the help of an infrared sensor, it tracks the gestures of a hand in the air over the controller. At the same time, developers offer an open system for which everyone can create what he thinks is necessary.
Startup Crowdfundingon the Indiegogo platform, and has already successfully raised three times the original amount of $ 50,000 - and another five days before the end of the campaign. Dealers are offered devices at a price of $ 99 (the startup plans to sell Flow at retail for $ 150). First of all, the device is positioned as a convenient and more precise mouse replacement in graphic editors.
The device works via Bluetooth, has replaceable batteries, which should last up to 4 months. Dimensions: 70 mm in diameter and 15 mm in height.
