Gesture recognizing QB1 computer attends to your every desire

Darren Murph

Scouting a computer that's "attentive to one's desires?" Good news, friends! Frédéric Kaplan's QB1, which was unveiled at the LIFT Conference in Geneva this past week, aims to be just that. Reportedly, the machine was designed in order to "alter the fundamentals of human-machine interaction," and rather than relying on the traditional mouse and keyboard approach, this one works entirely via gestures. QB1 is capable of recognizing inputs from both hands at once, with one example having a human select a record and adjust the volume by simply flicking their fingers through an on-screen album collection. We're told that the related patents behind the sophisticated 3D gesture interaction technology have been filed, but there's no word yet on when we'll be able to actually buy one. 'Til then, it's up to you to handle those "desires" yourself.
