Google Wants To Use Radar To Revolutionize Wearables


One of Google’s latest experiments, may change the way consumers interact with wearable devices.

Using radar technology, the tech giant’s advanced technology and projects team, built a sensor for tracking gestures under a program called Project Soli. Google announced the project Friday at its I/O conference.

When the tiny sensor is incorporated into a gadget or wearable, different hand gestures will be able to send signals to the device.

The interaction sensor is still in the development stage and is a couple of years away from being available to consumers.
