Benefits

The benefits of virtual keyboards are that they provide a way to have full-size keyboard functionality while on the road without the need to carry around an actual physical device. By detecting finger movements and interpreting keystrokes, these virtual keyboards help computers adapt around our natural or learned behaviors instead of us having to adapt around computer user input limitations such as text entry on mobile phones.

Beyond virtual keyboards, the applications of electronic-perception technology reach across a number of industries and functional areas including automotive, consumer electronics and video games, healthcare, and security. By adding the third dimension of depth perception to computer imaging, existing applications within these industries can be made far more accurate and intelligent. In the security arena, facial-recognition systems can be more accurate if looking at the contour of a person’s face instead of just a two-dimensional image. Within the video gaming industry, game controllers could be enhanced to allow the players to become more immersed in their gaming by using their hands and body movements in addition to the simple game console actions. In the automotive industry, electronicperception technology could well be used to “see” both inside and outside the vehicle. Sensors could be used to observe blind spots and to warn drivers if anything is there when the driver starts a turn. Virtual projections of instrument panels could be used to help operate systems such as radios and air conditioning, and could help drivers keep their eyes focused on the road.
