To use the Gesture Cube, you’re not supposed to touch it. Instead, you wave your hand to “access music, web, your family and friends”. Based on IDENT’s GestIC electric field sensing technology, the Gesture Cube is an interface system in the form factor of a six-sided cube.
The GestIC detects movements and distances in 3D space, enabling gesture control without any physical touching of any sort. The video demonstration is quite striking, and features a high-tech, futuristic interface.
The Gesture Cube is quite the device, but it’s not exactly for the portable consumer. We already have trouble fitting something the size of an iPad in our pockets, let alone a cube-shaped device. If this were to manifest in the consumer market, stick it for home usage.
