CES Weird: Give your TV the finger and it responds

If JVC has its way, you'll be able to permanently lose your TV remote control and just use hand gestures to change channels, adjust volume, drill through menus and turn it off. The company demonstrated a Snap & Gesture prototype consisting of a camera and motion sensor mounted above an LCD TV. With some practice standing from precise spots in relation to the sensor, TV functions could be manipulated by snapping your fingers, waving bye-bye, clapping and other air-clicking hand movements.

No plans for an actual commercial model is in the planning stages yet, but if it ever happens, the camera and sensor would be built into the set, although we can't imagine why old TVs couldn't be retrofitted with the same camera/sensor array in the demo.
