First ultrasonic MEMS controller to make mobile hands free
Control mobile devices without touching them.
The world's first digital ultrasonic micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) microphone is poised to change the way we interact with our mobile devices. Later this year advanced models will be shown that enable the user to control on-screen actions by waving, pointing, and molding on-screen images like clay. The ultrasonic field at 80kHz will extend in 3D both above and beside the screen so that users no longer have to cover-up the screen items they are controlling with their fingers. Knowles Corp. (Itasca, Ill.) will be leading the way with the first MEMS mic exclusively designed for accurate ultrasonic finger tracking, but the allure of 3D screen control is sure to spread quickly.
