Remember the 2002 film Minority Report? Remember Tom Cruise waving his arms like an orchestra conductor and using the air as an interface for his digital programs? Unlike the hover boards Marty McFly promised us but technology failed to deliver, the gesture-led computer application is here and yours to install.
Swoosh is an app built for presentations that lets you control your deck slide with a wave of your hand. No more clicking or tapping, just a graceful swipe left or right.
To set it up you’ll need to install the app on your phone and the tool on your desktop. Then open your preferred presentation program – the software syncs smoothly with a range of presentation tools including Prezi, Slidely, Powerpoint, Google Slides, Keynote and Acrobat Reader. Finally, place your phone or tablet on a table and wave your hand above it to navigate back and forth.
Make sure you have a strong wireless signal as you’ll need access to wi-fi for both your desktop and phone to use the app.
Now you’re set to go, you simply have to ensure your content is as forward-looking as the delivery tool.
