I agree with you. The whole notion of gesture control has been captured in movies for the longest time. That in my mind makes gesture control of anything pretty obvious.

It's like they're implying the existence of a system that has the sole purpose of interpreting kinetic sensor and touchscreen data to modify the print settings. This is obviously absurd - the whole patent was clearly designed to use against competitors that happen to have print settings and gesture recognition on the same device. I think the problem lies with the nature of the patent office. The job is so boring that anyone with the ability/experience to recognize bogus patents would never work there.
