Galaxy S4 to have Touchless Gesture Controls
The thought of Samsung Galaxy S4 to have Touchless gesture controls may seem otherworldly to many, but it is much closer to reality than it was a few years back. We have already seen Samsung implement the tech with Galaxy Note 2’s S-Pen functionality. Users can interact with their SGN2 by hovering the S-Pen over the display, without even touching the device. We all know that Samsung spends a hefty amount of its money on research and development, and it is entirely plausible that the company has figured out a way to incorporate the amazing feature.
Samsung is already reportedly working with Atmel’s latest maXTouch S controllers, which in laymen terms; make the Touchless gesture controls a reality. We have already seen the idea being implemented on the Pentech Vita, but the device used the front facing camera to accomplish the job, making the battery drain really fast. Samsung however will never jeopardize the battery timings of its devices. If truth be told, we are pretty excited about the prospect of a smartphone with this level of usability. Any smartphone which makes us feel like Tom Cruise from Minority Report is a great phone, in our books at least. We will have to wait and see what Samsung has in store for us, but don’t get your hopes too high.
