Metron Force to Showcase Gesture-Control Wristband at CES 2017

Metron Force will be exhibiting at CES 2017, Las Vegas, demonstrating a gesture-control wristband which enables control of multiple devices, including smart home devices, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) videogames, drones, robots, cars, and more. The mForce wristband allows for simultaneous control of multiple devices with simple gesture-based input.

“Our idea was inspired by the superheroes many of us admired as kids, such as the Star Wars Jedi Knight, which can move objects around using their hands with ease,” states the official press communication from Metron Force. “At CES, we will demo our mForce wristband to control a light, a robot, and other devices.”

The mForce wristband can simultaneously control up to six drones with wrist/hand gestures. A simple tap of the wristband switches between devices. In addition, Metron Force will reveal more details on the company’s intent to start an Indiegogo campaign for funding whereby people can support development in exchange for an opportunity to get a drone and wristband package.

A demonstration video of the mForce wristband is available here. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest announcements for VR and AR technologies taking place at CES 2017
