Hand gestures may replace switches in Taiwan

The hand may soon replace keys and power switches in everyday tasks like unlocking doors and switching on appliances, after a Taiwanese instructor invented a system turning the hand into an "invisible key."

Such a system devised by Technology and Science Institute of Northern Taiwan (TSINT) computer and communication engineering instructor Tsai Yao Pin can accept preset gestures, Taiwan's Central News Agency reported.

According to Tsai, the "invisible key" system uses triaxial accelerometer technology for door locks and uses a single-chip controller as the core control of the system.

He said the system could also be used to turn home appliances off and on.
