3D Computer Interface

My friend Scott, also an Electrical Engineer, recently completed his capstone project at Northeastern University.  It is a unique input device that bases its technology on electrostatics, a very cool subset of Electrical Engineering.  Below is the video and a brief blurb about the product.

Utilizing the theory of electrostatics, we have designed a low-cost human-computer interface device that has the ability to track the position of a user’s hand in three dimensions. Physical contact is not required and the user does not need to hold a controller or attach markers to their body. To control the device, the user simply waves their hand above it in the air.
