Waving hand – a Flying Concept !

 Is Flying possible just with your fingertips? Is it still an illusion or a reality? Is it possible to control flying machines – Drones just with the help of hand-gestures. Is it fascinating of clicking photos just with the help of gestures?

 The answer is definitely yes in today’s technology driven world where Gesture recognition technology has become a fascinating science behind talking with the hands. There are endless number of applications and fields where this science proves to be a magical band. Palm control techniques enable the users to control the objects to work in a conditional manner with the help of various gestures being performed. In the past this technology amazed us in unlocking smart devices and proving secure access to any consumer gadget.

Now a days, waving a hand is not limited in dealing with the security algorithm rather waving has become a flying concept altogether.


One of the prominent example is that of DJI company that manufactures Spark, a mini drone. From the name it is pretty much clear that there is a spark in this drone and here the spark is that of gesture controlled technology that empowers us to push our creative boundaries by controlling the drone with the gestures of the hand. Just by recognizing your hand, the spark takes off from your hand by recognizing your face. It is really surprisingly that the launching time is just a fraction of seconds. Amazingly Aerial photos can be taken using hand gestures. Just by deep learning of gesture recognition allows us to take selfies with simple and intuitive hand movements. For selfies, all we need is to first wave hand and then make an airy frame with the help of fingers, the photo will shoot automatically. To make aerial technology, an essential part in day to day life, this novel combination of hand gestures with the drone technology really boosts the present day scenario making it easier to capture the world from new perspective.

Most of the companies have already started enhancing their delivery business with the help of drones and with just the gesture of your hand the order will be to your doorstep within a few seconds.

Patent Trends


Xiaomi, a chinese company filed a patent that relates to Mi band controlled drone with the Chinese Intellectual property office. From the figure, it is clear that the drone works well with the band placed on the wrist of the user and with the slight variations in the gestures the drone can be controlled.

Even the Universities and Research Institutes are not far away from the technological companies in filing the patents. The Taiwanese technology researchers made an algorithm that allows them to control the drones with the help of Apple watch placed on the wrist of hand. The researchers even demonstrated their work outside the Park Lane Department Store on Gongyi Road in Taichung City that showed how gesticulation could fly the drones by interpreting the signals from the Apple watch. They named their algorithm as Dong software and filed the patent in Taiwan’s Li & Cai Intellectual Property Office.

At last we can say that controlling flying objects seemingly with the hands is no longer a fantasy, rather a booming field that will revolutionize the whole world
