Mobile Magazine reports that a company called Elliptic Labs plans to showcase its Touchless Gesture User Interface technology at CES in Las Vegas this January. The interface is designed to enable the user to control their device by using hand movements, similar to Microsoftâ€™s Kinect, without ever touching the screen. The interface operates via a touchless dock for the iPad, and Elliptic Labs will be showing off a prototype of the dock at CES.
According to Mobile Magazine, the dock uses ultrasound technology to create a â€œtouchless zoneâ€ of approximately one foot all around the iPad.
Sounds like a fantastic idea, hopefully weâ€™ll get to see more demos of the dock after CES.
