A brand under the Next Industries portfolio, The Tactigon is a product that aims to fundamentally revolutionize how consumers interact with other everyday consumer electronics. The shape is odd. The design seems unnatural. But when you dive into the possibilities of the product, The Tactigon presents some very unique opportunities.
Boiled down, the U-shaped wearable is meant to provide gesture control functionality to a range of everyday tech. The system is app-based, so developers are able to download the company’s SDK and tap into the features of The Tactigon Skin controller. Some of the examples of applications include using The Tactigon Skin as a remote control steering wheel to navigate a virtual racetrack, swiping through presentations, and robotic arm control or quadcopter control using gestures.
Gesture control is definitely an area that’s beginning to see some real innovation, and The Tactigon team seems to be at the forefront of making this an affordable, multi-functional kind of platform more so than just an input method.
