If there is anything Google has learnt with the patent wars is to file for everything as soon as an idea starts to be implemented. And the latest patent filing from the Search Giant is looking very promising. The idea behind it is motion-based gestures, in which one can control a device without directly interacting with it.

It would be much like Xbox Kinect, in which one can perform certain tasks via gestures. The camera will be able to detect gestures such as taps, hovering and swypes. These would all be programmed to carry out a command, allowing you to take control of your device hands-free.

We have seen similar technology in the past, coming from Pantech. The manufacturer implemented a touch-less gesture system into its Pantech Vega LTE, bringing similar features to its customers.

Just imagine being able to answer the phone by hovering your hand over the camera, or making a call straight with the aid of hands-free gestures and voice controls. Sounds like a great concept, and we hope that Google does something with this idea.

Who knows, they might even be thinking of integrating it to Google Assistant. That might be taking it a bit far, but it is not completely an impossibility. The Pantech Vega LTE demonstration is posted below, just so you can see how said technology could work. Also, hit the source link for more details, and let us know what you think. Are you ready to see this technology coming to your nearest Android device?
