NailO The MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Media Lab has introduced this new way to interact with the digital world. NailO holds sensors, a circuit and battery to forward actions to connected devices and even other devices such as a light fixture or smart TV can be controlled with the help of this little gadget. NailO accepts various gestures such as tapping, swiping left, right or up, down and also supports multi-finger gestures. NailO is small, discreet, and a removable device which completes interactions without getting attention of the people when you are busy or in a meeting and want to reply to an urgent text message.
