People often use their fingers to sense areas that they cannot see. For example, we may use our hand to search for a pen dropped between the cushions of a couch.
But now this kind of work can be performed easily by Magic Finger.
Magic Finger allows users to enhance the capabilities of such probing. By viewing its real-time video feed on a handheld device, the Magic Finger becomes an extension of the user’s eyes.
For example, a user can look behind them, around a corner or out the window of a car by simply pointing their finger in the associated direction.
What Is Magic Finger:
Magic Finger is a thimble-like device worn on the user’s finger. It combines two optical sensors: a lower resolution, high speed sensor for tracking movement, and a higher-resolution camera for capturing detail.
Magic Finger can identify the object that users touch, tapping different surfaces can trigger different command executions
Easy To Use:
Magic Finger can be affixed to the fingertip using an adjustable Velcro ring. A small plastic casing holds the components.
The case was designed to control the distance between the RGB camera and surface during contact.
Best Part Is:
Magic Finger is able to recognize textures and use the information to understand the environment, or object the user is interacting with, and perform associated contextual actions
