In honor of Black Friday, Fish Fry is storming the gates and grabbing all the embedded designs we can get our grubby little hands on. OK, not really. We’re going to wait just one more year to buy that new touchscreen embedded design, because by then, touch might have already been taken right out of the equation. Yep, we’re talking about gesture control this week. My guest is Fanie Duvenhage (Director of Human Machine Interface Division at Microchip Technology). Fanie and I are going to explore what this new 3D gesture controller is all about, why this GestIC chip is different (and cooler) than current camera-based gesture recognition interfaces out there, and how you can get your hands on a GestIC development kit so you can start designing with one.
Also this week, I give everyone one more chance to win a Spartan-6 LX9 Microboard courtesy of Xilinx.
