Gesture control tech that works from across the room

Controlling devices like smartphones and computers using gestures on the screen is common today. The big downside is that if you have to use gestures you must have the device in your hands to do so. Touching the screen also leaves a lot of fingerprints and smears behind.

Texas Instruments and Extreme Reality have teamed up to design a gesture control system that doesn't require the user to actually touch the screen. The system uses a cheap camera mounted on the front of the phone to recognize gestures made in the air over the phone.

TI says that the system would allow a smartphone user to control their device from across the room. A user could also control the phone while driving without having to pick it up. The gesture control system is optimized for the TI OMAP platform.
