A new prototype from a group of German companies could have found a replacement to the touchscreen – using hand gestures? Called the Gesture Cube, the prototype will be able to translate hand movements that are close to the screen (or screens) into commands for the device.
You will, however, still need to touch a switch or button to activate the task – but using your hands to just increase the volume or scroll through your entire media collection or switch to different screens are still revolutionary.
It is still in a concept, so this might not come out any time soon. It would be interesting to see how this would work in the real world. But until we see this, have a drool on the images below.
