Today Texas Instruments showcased its OMAP 4 platform, a very forward-thinking mobile platform that brings everything from 3D renderings to motionless gesture recognition. TI collectively calls the applications in OMAP "Human Device Interactions" (HDI).

"TI envisions a near-term mobile future that will be vastly different than today's mobile environment. Similar to how the touchscreen changed the way we interact with our devices, touchless gesturing and 3D-HD mobile capabilities will take experiences to the next level and radically change how we connect to our devices and the things around us. TI is excited to play a key role with our customers in this revolution," said TI VP and manager of the OMAP platform, Remi El-Ouazzane.

Here is a rundown of the features that TI is working on with this highly ambitious platform:

Touchless gesturing: Using a 2D camera, users will be able to use their hands and body movement to trigger certain phone functions.

Multiple display support: Instead of just one screen or display, content and information can be spread out across multiple UIs.

Interactive projection: Snap a picture with a built-in camera and immediately manipulate it

Stereoscopic 3D imaging: By mapping two cameras together, a mobile phone could actually perceive depth from a captured scene or picture. And it would even capture it in high definition.

Object recognition: Face recognition from camera images, as well as logo and object recognition for more sophisticated image manipulation.

Does it all sound like a pipe dream? Well, TI expects this technology to be deployed this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more info from this leader in mobile tech.
