You’ve misplaced your remote before and have felt too lazy to get up in search of it. What if you could simply switch channels with a wave of your hand?
The nTobeBox, running on Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS, turns any ordinary TV into a SmartTV that goes past conventional televised broadcast viewing, but allows for streaming content, apps, video calls, Internet connectivity and intuitive hand gesture recognition.
eyeSight’s technology allows “users comprehensive control over every aspect of Innodigital’s set-top box,” the company said in a press release. Both hand gestures and hand tracking enable virtual mouse control, yielding full control over the TV as if one were using a handheld remote.
In the coming years, Innodigital is seeking to work with TV providers to package the box with a digital television subscription. Would you want gesture-only control over your TV? Let us know in the comments.
