Imagine a world where the touch screens we use every day no longer need to be tapped or swiped to be activated. A world where we could simply motion our commands and our wishes would be understood! Smart devices have become ubiquitous tools, but screen size is proving increasingly limited for the countless things we want to do on them. For Andrea Colaço, 28, an electrical engineer, computer scientist and co-founder of 3dim Tech, this is a personal frustration. ‘Whenever I’m using one, half the screen gets filled by a pop-up keyboard!’
