Shortcut – the digital prosthesis
Founders: Lucas Rex, Maximilian Mahal, David Kaltenbach
Shortcut is a digital wristband that translates phantom hand gestures and planar movements into a wireless computer control. It facilitates a quick re-entry into the profession and unrestricted digital  interaction. Shortcut’s mission is to enable „human-machine“ interaction for an affordable price: www.digital-prosthesis.de

This concept can be potentially applied to other collaborative environments where management of complex information and visualization play a crucial role.
