Nokia Patents S60 Touchless Gesture UI

Illustration for article titled Nokia Patents S60 Touchless Gesture UI

According to patents, Nokia has developed a user-interface that goes beyond multitouch, and into the realm of tracking hand motions in three-dimensional space. The gestures look complicated, and I'm worried it might take longer to learn than Palm's Graffiti writing, but I'm willing to start with the one-finger commands (select, rotate, delete) before moving on to the two-fingered stuff (zoom, resize, etc.).

DISCUSSION

Hmmm. A mixture between Minority Report, Naruto, annoying Bluetooth headset people and gang signs? No thanks. Keep developing the technology, though - there's a lot of better uses.
