It was nearly a year ago that Project Soli was unveiled at 2015’s Google I/O conference. Essentially a radar-based system, Soli enjoyed a slight resurgence in August when some developer kits were rumored to be shipping, and other applications were demonstrated.

Which begs the question, will Project Soli make another appearance at next month’s I/O, possibly with more mobile-integrated or commercial applications?
