The new TV remote control: your hand! – a technology service breakthrough

How many times are you searching for where you lost your clunky remote control?  Or maybe you called it a clicker, kvetcher, or another funny nickname.  Well, soon you won’t have to search for your lost remote.  It will be your hand!

With the bleeding technology of infrared and motion, your hand will be able to direct the channels and volume of your television.  Has anyone seen Tome Cruise in Minority Report?  Incremental movements have been used by the Wii-mote to create this cultural phenomenon.  Hitachi has set up the process where a camera is set up below the TV screen.  Then, you can program, similar to audio commands on a computer, but with hand movements how to change channels and the volume.  It will recognize only horizontal, vertical, and toward & away gestures.  So, other extraneous movements will be ignored.

No date has been set for the release.  But, expect tech issues or shall we say motion issues with the new device.  The remote-less device will be packaged with premium TV sets, and is still a prototype at this point.
