Interaction with a computer has mainly been with a keyboard and mouse; or more recently a touch screen, but a company is hoping to make computer interactivity much better. A tech start-up has made a device called ‘Gest’ that you strap a device to your hands and fingers that will replace taping, swiping and clicking with simple hand movements. A combination of accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers are used to determine the positions of your fingers and translates that to the screen. Additionally, there is a software development kit (SDK), which will allow anyone to build new applications for the platform.

It is currently on Kickstarter where anyone can pledge for the early-bird release. Shipping is expected late next year.
