The eBay e-shop team has created a new technology for managing the smartphone interface with the help of head movements. This system uses the ARKit set and the infrared camera iPhone X to track movements.
In the interface, a virtual cursor appears, which you can control the slopes up, down, or sideways. At this time, the smartphone using Face ID creates a 3D model of the face and watches every movement of the head. While the work of the head control system was shown using the eBay application interface as an example. Completely without hands, you can flip through ads, watch photos and even pay for the purchase. And the text can be entered by voice.
The developers published their project on the GitHub site. So any developer can implement this code and add a control mode without hands to his application. While this technology is available only for the iPhone X, but soon will come out new smartphones Apple. In addition, Xiaomi recently introduced the flagship Mi 8, which also has a 3D camera.
