Groundbreaking Gesture-Control System On Its Way Into Our Smartphones [Technology]
posted November 7 2013 14:18.31 by spic0m

Gesture-control systems are starting to become popular on our laptop and desktop computers, and it was just a matter of time before we would see it adopted in our smartphones as well. This gesture-control system is infinitely different from that on the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. This one makes more sense and could mean a whole new way of interacting with our smartphones. When this feature will come to find its way into our phones is unsure, but it certainly would be cool to mess around with it once it does make it into them.

The highly appealing gesture-control feature developed by Norwegian startup Elliptic Labs, is most likely to be bashed by Samsung Galaxy S4 users as it too has this feature. However, you will have to stay pretty close to the screen in order to make it work. With this gesture-control system, you don't need to be anywhere near the screen as the feature is driven by ultrasound. This means that the technology behind this feature will detect changes in the ultrasound sound waves and detect what you want the smartphone to do.
