Gesture-control for regular TV
Australian engineers Prashan Premaratne and Quang Nguye have designed a novel gesture-control for regular TV.
The controller's built-in camera can recognise seven simple hand gestures and work with up to eight different gadgets around the home. According to designers:
“Crucially for anyone with small children, pets or gesticulating family members, the software can distinguish between real commands and unintentional gestures“.
Premaratne and Nguye predict the system availability on the market within three year.
