We have seen plenty of smart wearable devices and connected gadgets that can control apps. Hairware takes it to a whole new level by allowing you to control apps by stroking your hair. Invented by Katia Vega, Hairware consists of conductive hair extensions to allow you to activate apps discreetly.
As the above video shows, this technology can be used to record a conversation, send location, or even take a selfie. The possibilities are endless here. Hairware acts as a capacitive touch sensor that detects touch variations and uses machine learning algorithms to recognize user’s intention. What do you think? Are you impressed with this idea?
