Samsung's SelfieType technology lets you print on any surface

Keyboard SelfieType

We have already reported that Samsung will present at CES-2020 a whole scattering of new technologies developed on the basis of its own startup incubator C-Lab. One of them is SelfieType technology.

This is a product that makes it possible to use the front camera of a gadget (smartphone, laptop or tablet) to create a virtual keyboard.

To do this, just point the camera at the hands and start typing. As long as they are in the field of view of the lens, the patented SelfieType AI-based mechanism will analyze finger movements and interpret them as real keystrokes.

For all its innovation, the technology presented may cause some difficulties compared to a conventional keyboard. It seems that the software does not yet have sound and physical feedback, while it does not give the user the opportunity to see with what “buttons” he is typing.

In a word, some unsolved problems remain with the SelfieType development team. However, if you manage to overcome them, smartphone users will be able to print in much more comfortable conditions, abandoning the uncomfortable on-screen gadget keyboard.
