“What are you doing Dave?” Hand signals subvert the need for a television remote control.

TV Clapper

It is the year 2009. Man can now communicate with television via a series of hand signals. (Just don’t do the “Hand-Jive” or it might malfunction). Seriously, Daily Mail just posted an article in Science and Technology indicating that:

Dr Premaratne, of the University of Wollongong….. has come up with a box that lets television viewers change channels, switch on the DVD player or switch off an irritating presenter with the wave of a hand.

Imagine no longer looking for the remote in the cushions of your couch. Or worse… losing control of the TV because you no longer have to fight for the remote?

The next iteration surely will be a tie-in to internet browsing as the internet and TV will soon merge. Gee… I thought the Wii looked silly.
