Waving at TV changes channels

by Dhiram Shah

The device clips onto your hand to operate the TV with simple hand gestures and short-range wireless technology. Specific gestures are still being developed but a palm-up or palm-down gesture could mean fast-forward and rewind, while hand-up could change the channel up and hand-down could change channels down. The TV mouse has sensors that measure the movement and orientation of the user’s hand and a thumb button to lock in commands. The device could also be developed to control other digital household technology, such as microwaves, lights and air conditioning. Via We-make-money-not-art
