Ivan Poupyrev With Project Soli At Google

Have you ever wanted to have control of anything in the motion of your hand or fingers ?

 Like you may have wanted to control the volume with just the movement which are delicate and precise. Well it was not possible until now. There were devices which can detect motions like hand and body gestures.

 But there have not been any such devices which can detect delicate type of motion. However Project Soli is developing a new interaction sensor using radar technology.


Ivan Poupyrev, working for advanced technology and project group at Google is the founder of Project Soil. As the hand is the ultimate input device and its extremely precise and fast rather than the input devices we use.

 Project Soil is all about capturing all the possibilities of human hand with the help of radar technology. This was  what Ivan passionate about from the first. The fineness, preciseness or accuracy of hand could be used to the virtual world and that’s what Project Soil is all about.

 It was possible using radio frequency spectrum to track human hand and finger movements. Those motions are micro motions which can be used for the wearable like Smartwatches, Internet of things and other Computing devices.

 The sensor can track sub-millimeter motions at high speed and accuracy. Radar is a technology which transmits a radio wave toward the target and the receiver of the radar intercepts the energy  from that target.

 This Technology is can bring a revolution in the world of gaming and even the use of computing devices. Being able to detect such small motions,  we have come to know how innovations can make a difference. With this Technology interacting with the digital world will surely be fun and comfortable.

 Bringing the accuracy in the Computing World itself, this project Soil is expected to be quite successful. Small motion of your hands can be a big wave to this sensor.

 Project soli resolves some major issues like gesture control and the use of hand as the best input device.
