Microsoft already made controller-less motion interaction popular with Kinect, so why not try to revolutionize other kinds of sensor and interaction technology?

A new video from Microsoft Research details a project called Digits, a hand sensor that projects your motions accurately on a screen. Ideally, Digits will be able to provide interaction for gaming, augmented reality, apps on mobile devices, and more.

The main components of Digits are an infrared camera, infrared laser-line generator, diffuse illumination, and an inertial measurement unit. While it’s not quite as cool as Google Glass, Digits is still a fascinating way advanced technology could change how we interact with digital and real-world objects.
