Very interesting technology! I can see a clear use for close-range gesture/proximity detection specifically when a RGB camera has limited field-of-view. What is the resolution of detection? Can it detect individual fingers? The only drawback I see is that this solution will require a HW change as compared to a RGB camera based solution, which would only need a SW update (given that most of the handheld devices now have a RGB camera). Are you seeing a willingness in manufacturers and consumers for this approach? -Gaurav , Texas Instruments
