Dr. Quine: Yes I noticed that too, except when she got into the car she did some mid-air waving over the console. That movie, however, was not dedicated to gesture control, it was an earlier production that showed all of what Microchip does. Thanks for the careful analysis.

Standard Gesture Interface

Having standard 3-D gestures in mid-air sounds like a benefit since it would eliminate the need to learn a new interface for every new device we meet. That said, most of the examples in the movie were direct touch interfaces which are already broadly available (car access, house security keypad). The most innovative element seemed to be the virtual screen implementation illustrated as a computer interface.

You've got to watch the movie art the end to appreciate all the uses for this $2 Microchip that adds gesture recognition to any device, eliminating the need for touchscreen, knobs and every other control surface, even mechanical buttons.
