Gesture Control for Devices

One of the big problems from the teacher’s prospective with using a computer in the classroom is the fact you are pretty much tethered to the keyboard.  New technologies such as touch sensitive surfaces are am improvement, but gesture recognition may prove to be very helpful too.  Imagine being able to wander around the classroom while playing a video on screen, then being able to pause, rewind, or change the video just by waving your hand at the screen.  I predict you will see this technology in use at home by the end of the year.  Awesome!
