Project Soli is an attempt to remove physical interaction with a smart device by utilising very tiny radar chips to detect gestures
Google's Advanced Technologies and Projects group (ATAP), regular participants in especially innovative tech projects, is presenting Soli. Though it looks like a chip, it is in fact a radar, capable of recording finger movements and interpreting them to interact with a connected device, like a watch, for example.
If there's one thing we've learned this Google I/O, it's to keep a closer eye at ATAP. The name ought to raise curiosity, and stands for Advanced Technology and Projects. It's like Google Labs, but for far more exciting interfaces and hardware technologies. Google hasn't disappointed us this time!
