A five-year-old prototype of an "Air Writing" sensor wristband. Developed by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, the sensor attached to the wrist records hand movements and a computer system captures the signals and translates them into text.The "CeBIT" international computer expo is the world's biggest high-tech fair, Trade fair organized by Deutsche Messe AG and Great Britain is partner country of the fair. The trade fair is held every year on the Hanover fairground, the world's largest fairground, in Hanover, Lower Saxony, Germany, and is considered a barometer of the state of the art in information technology.With an exhibition area of roughly 450,000 m² (5 million ft²) and up to 850,000 visitors at the apex of the dot-com boom, it is larger both in area and attendance than its Asian counterpart COMPUTEX and the no-longer held American equivalent COMDEX. CeBIT is a German language acronym for «Centrum für Büroautomation, Informationstechnologie und Telekommunikation», which would literally translate as "Center for Office Automation, Information Technology and Telecommunication".An employee demonstrates the use of a Pearl FreeSculpt 3D Pen.
