Google hand tracking now open source

Google hand tracking now open source

Google has made its hand detection and tracking tech open-source, giving developers the opportunity to poke around in the tech’s code and see what makes it tick.

“We hope that providing this hand perception functionality to the wider research and development community will result in an emergence of creative use cases, stimulating new applications and new research avenues,” reads a blog post from the team.

That post over on the Google AI Blog dives into exactly how the tech works, and devs interested in getting a closer look at it can find the project over on Google’s Github repository.

Nothing is going to be the same – not even the most menial jobs. The pace of change of what is coming, and what is happening today, is beyond even our wildest dreams.

Not even construction jobs will be the same. Such as this example of building a complex wave-like wall structure in less than a day with perfect placement of each brick.

Fologram combines computer-aided design with the holographic capabilities of Microsoft’s HoloLens headset to help in assembling even complex objects. The hologram can overlay exactly where each piece of the build should go, as well as an outline of the finished product.
