I saw this on the store page or whatever. It looks pretty sweet, but quite a ways off in the future.
It was INCREDIBLY temperamental...only about a third of the people that tried to use it in the demo's I saw could actually get it to respond correctly.
Yeah the demo looks like they ONLY have a proximity sensor in it, turning on and off LED's - I seriously doubt any of those features they were describing will come to light anytime soon.
I am not sold on that being any better than having the controls on all of the time. Quite the opposite actually.
You have to wave your hand, wait a second while watching the screen for the controls to light up, nope, not the controls I wanted, move your hand, area lights up, nope not that one, move your hand, aha there is the button I wanted!
This seems far more distracting, in my opinion, then just having the controls there at all times.
Just another example of a stupid gadget. If I were driving a car with that thing I would be more likely to cause an accident because I'd be searching around for buttons. In a car with a typical dashboard you look at dash to find a button BEFORE you go and press it, not the other way round.
If they made them light-up permanently while ACC/IGN is on, then that's a different story... I'd like that.
How on earth do those projects even get to the planning process?!?
