An anonymous reader writes "Elliptic Labs is set to debut their Touchless Gesture User Interface technology which uses ultrasound to let the user navigate through a device's commands simply with the motion of their hands. From the article: 'Elliptic plans to showcase their “Mimesign” technology at IFA in Berlin from the 3rd to 8th of September 2010. Mimesign will bring intuitive ways for people to interact with devices. The possibilities range from tablets, remote controls or in-car media controls. The interface is based on ultrasound technology and allows the user to remain in an unchanged state.'"

    So, instead of people simply talking into bluetooth mics, gesturing wildly in space and acting like a schizophrenic off their meds, you're simultaneously going to have people waving their arms around like they are conducting a symphony.

    Yep, cubicleville is going to get even weirder than it already is.

    This is the same basic tech that was used to track position on the old Nintendo Power Glove, and having used it and written drivers to interface it to a PC, it isn't accurate enough to work for anything finer grained than what's shown in the video. So if you want to control something using large, sweeping, ungainly hand gestures this is the tech you want.

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
