Gesture recognition may be interesting. Finally a phone can't be called a phone as it is a gadget that can do so many different tasks!

Geesture recognition can be used to monitor the psychological pattern of the mind of a person doing a routine work like a waiter,receptionist, driver,operator and so on. This technology has a lot of applications apartfrom those mentioned in this article. Qualcomm will add wings to this technology and fly it.

It seems that Qualcomm will give Gesture Recognition a commercial start. Still as qualcomm is not directly into device manufacturing it will still require much time that will be required for integrating with existing OSs.

As touch screen has revolutionize the smartphone segment, i believe that the gesture recognition technology has potential to improve the user experience in home appliance and gaming sectors. I saw a video on TED website about the use of gesture recognition http://www.ted.com/talks/pranav_mistry_the_thrilling_potential_of_sixthsense_technology.html

Looks like another step forward for Qualcomm since they will now own that IP. And that, in turn, should result in an expansion of gesture recognition in the smartphone and tablet industries. It will be interesting to watch this play out and see the differing implementations. And, of course, to see the upcoming legal battles over patents in this area.

It will be very interesting to see what the mobile phones will do now with gesture recognition hardware and software. This is a new interface that feels more natural to the human. Electronics are becoming more inmersed in the way we interact day to day with our surroundings. And the important thing about this kind of user interfaces is that brings in people that normally wouldn't be a gizmo's person. Don't you think?

Follow-up to DrQuine's question: What specific algorithms are involved? I'm assuming that the design IP relates to these algorithms. Perhaps there is also manufacturing IP, potentially for the MEMS sensors? Does anyone know?

Gesture-recognition technology is a hot topic because it improves the user interface to electronic devices. How does the gesture-recognition intellectual property map out between GestureTek and Microsoft (Kinect)? Is this technology space going to spawn a legal battle?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
