The 2018 Asia Hardware Battle Xi’an competition was a huge success.

After several rounds of fierce competition, we finally selected the top three hardware startups to represent Xi’an at the grand final round of Asia Hardware Battle in Shanghai.

In this competition, one startup rose above all the others and proved extraordinary through a series of stringent evaluation and step-by-step screening by several prominent judges: Sun Bei (Head of Investment from Eagles Fund), and Han Dong (Cofounder of Terark; Executive President at Torch Institute of Blockchain).

Winner: DTing

DTing Gesture Controlled Wristband (Image credit: DTing)

DTing robots and toys have launched an interactive method never before seen in the market, while making sure the user can get used to it quickly and keeping it friendly to newbies. To satisfy the different habits and styles of users, the product does not limit the variety of hand gestures. In other words, the user can try hand gestures as they like and find the most comfortable or coolest gestures for them. The DTing Gesture Controlled Wristband is an all-in-one solution to detect all of the users’ gesture behaviors, including forearm movement, hand gesture, and even finger force. The surface electromyography (sEMG) signal, gyroscope signal, accelerometer signal, and more related signals are fused to recognize gestures in high precision, making it so that it seems like you can use telekinesis as a supernatural ability.

In addition to DTing, here are the other 6 qualified startups that appeared on the field:
