University Goes Hi-Tech

Updated: Friday, August 15 2014, 03:31 PM CDT

ILLINOIS -- A start up company based at the University of Illinois' "Enterpriseworks" has come up with a new way of using wearable electronics.

The company  "Rithmio" has developed software that can be used on your smart phone, smart watch and more that tracks and records your movements.
    
It can be used to accurately track exercise routines or it can be used to move something on a computer screen, like a PowerPoint presentation or - as you can see - Google maps.

"Our software can run on any device, with any kind of hardware, out of the box. And once you have it working on your device, you can quickly prototype new gestures by training the system to recognize new types of gestures in as little as 6 to 10 seconds."

Officials from the company tell us their software could be used to track activity of someone in physical therapy or an athlete after an injury to see if they have recovered and can move to the best of their ability.
