CES 2008: Forget the remote, wave your hand instead

Posted by Brier Dudley

LAS VEGAS -- Here's a fun research project that Toshiba is demonstrating at CES. It's a home theater PC that can be controlled with gestures instead of a remote control. Instead of digging around the couch cushion when you need to change the channel, you just shake your fist at the screen.

A camera on the screen recognizes the gestures, but it was sensitive. The demonstration was done against a white backdrop, and it didn't work when I stood too close with a camera. Toshiba's demonstrator here is Meagan Lee Medick.
