Google's motion sensors are about to do.
The search giant on Monday was granted approval by the Federal Communications Commission to distribute radar-based motion sensors, also known as Project Soli, according to Reuters. The sensors allow users to operate electronic devices using handcards.
The FCC approval allows the search engine to operate sensors at higher power levels than permitted, and the sensors will be allowed on board aircraft.
"Granting of waiver will serve the community interest by providing innovative device control capabilities using non-contact hand-held technology," Julius Knapp, FCC's engineering and technology manager, wrote in the order.
In March, Google requested the FCC to give its waiver, according to the order. The sensor captures motion in a three-dimensional space by means of a radar beam to enable touch without touching device functions.
The search giant revealed Project Soli in 201
Google and the FCC did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
