Omniband: Behind the Scenes
Jessie Gashler describes himself as someone who is kind of crazy and loves to learn and pose questions. His educational background ranges from advanced math to robotics and he has been studying programming on his own for almost a decade now. Jesse used to work with electronics, which inspired him to ask himself if he could make a mouse move just by using a motion sensor. He gave it a go and it worked. At first this led him to the idea of a glove with sensors over the fingertips, but with time and dedication the concept evolved into a wristband device with the ability to detect a person's movements.
