19. A radar system comprising:
a radio element configured to provide a radar transmission, the radar transmission transmitting data and capable of interacting with human tissue;
a radar antenna configured to receive reflections from interactions by the human tissue in the radar transmission that transmits the data and is capable of interacting with the human tissue;
a signal processor configured to process the received reflections in the radar transmission sufficient to determine the received reflections in the radar transmission comprise gesture data associated with a gesture; and
a system manager configured to determine the gesture from the gesture data and to cause a data communication to be altered between the radar system and a computing device, the alteration based on the determined gesture.
