Control Your Presentation Through Gestures With Swoosh App
We all have been presenting ideas and topics in front of our bosses, teachers and colleagues for a long, long time. So much so that trends changed from textual to visual, visual to audio, and so on. But what about the way we interact with the presentation itself?
Swoosh, a little $2 Android app, has the answer to making presentations more attractive and simply put, cooler. As the name indicates, you can now simply change slides with a swoosh of your hand, and voila! You get an increment from your boss.
The app is pretty simple to work around with, as all it requires is an Android phone to install the app, and a personal computer or device which will be installed with the server tool so the slides can be swooshed back and forth with the wave of our hand.
How does the app work?
Swoosh uses the front camera of your device to detect the gestures of your hand and applies image processing to decipher the meaning behind the certain hand gesture. If you want to move to the next slide, move your hand from left to right, and right to left to go back to the previous slide.
Of course, there are constraints to the process, as obstruction and distance from the device determine the performance of the app, so it is advised you stand 12 inches away from the device for optimal action.
While the latest venture from OnTheGo Platforms works on Android at the moment, the server tool can be deployed on any machine, Windows, Mac or Linux. Swoosh is also compatible with various presentation tools, like PowerPoint, Prezi, Slidely, Keynote and Google Slides.
