1. A computer-implemented method comprising:

  • receiving selection, through one or more direction sensors of a radar-communication device, of a direction for projection of a radar transmission;

    projecting, through a radio element of a radar system of the radar-communication device, a directed radar transmission in the selected direction, the directed radar transmission transmitting data from the radar-communication device;

    receiving, at an antenna of the radar-communication device, a reflection caused by an interaction made with the directed radar transmission;

    determining, at a computing system associated with the radar-communication device, that the interaction indicates gesture data associated with a gesture made within the directed radar transmission;

    determining, based on the gesture data, the gesture;

    determining, based on the gesture, a selection concerning control of an entity; and

    passing the selection to the entity effective to cause the control.
