Apple’s patent application “using hand gestures to navigate the user interface” has been officially published.
After checking the State Intellectual Property Office it is learned that the whole of this disclosure involves the use of hand gestures to navigate the user interface.
From the patent schematic, Apple’s new patent is expected to be used on the smartwatch, and the wearer can control the operation of the smartwatch from space by making gestures that can be recognized by the system in the actual use process. For example, the “OK” gesture is used to control the start/stop of the timer built into the smartwatch.
