Did you ever think it is possible to control a router with hand gestures? Probably not but Google is ready to surprise you with their new Asus made OnHub router.
While the price tag is definitely going to make a lot of buyers frown, the conical shaped router is sure to interest some because it supports hand gestures to a minimal level. When you are watching movie on a tablet, using a Chromecast to stream content or busy uploading stuff on a computer, you can wave on top of the OnHub router so that it can direct all its bandwidth to the said device.
The first launch by Google was manufactured by TPLink and the new one is by Asus. If the former is expensive at $200, this one is $220 and definitely going to make most think twice before buying the product.
The company claims that it will easily sync with your other products at home and will not stand out as a technology device as other routers do. Besides, it uses a stylish lighting system at the bottom to indicate its present mode. The device connects wirelessly with your smartphone and can be controlled through a app. It makes it easy to know if it experiencing internet issues, hardware problems or find whether a specific device in your home has been causing the trouble.
Google’s ultimate aim is to make routers smart and OnHub products are trying to accomplish them, albeit being overly expensive at the moment.
