Elliptic Labs makes a touchless iPad sensor
TUAW ran an article from the CES show discussing a touchless user interface for the iPad. The article states, “Currently, the system only allows for a few simple gestures…[and] you do need to be pretty close…to the screen to operate the device.”
Can you see the potential for musicians? We may not have time to touch a screen…but we could have time to wave a hand or wave a foot past a sensor…
The potential is great with this technology. I partially expect Apple to buy the company and package this feature in iPad 3. (Just kidding, but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit. The next step to mind-control is touchless control of the device).
