Is this the Kinect of Mobiles?

[MWC] What if you could gesture your hand in front of a smartphone to command it, browse menus, select items, zoom, rotate and more…? Engineers at XTR (which has Texas Instrument as an investor since 2010) have worked hard on this problem and they think that they have a solution. Their touchless gesture software is touted to work with any platform (this is a single core mobile device). Before you watch the video (in the full post): the general idea is that the camera can recognize the skeletal structure of your hand (it expects a hand). From there, it can recognize hand gesture, but also finger gestures according to XTR. The first productivity boost? You don’t need to wipe your screen anymore Is this the Kinect of Mobiles? Check the video after the jump.
