Panasonic has demonstrated a pioneering gesture/signal-input remote for TV at the International CES exhibition, 2011.
A TV can be hand-regulated using the remote by moving it. Panasonic also advanced a graphical user interface (GUI) for the remote, which can be functioned three-dimensionally on a 3D TV.
Besides its gesture-input functionality, the TV can also be regulated employing a touch sensor fixed at the tip of the remote. For instance, a thumb can be pointed on the touch sensor, and a pointer can be located on the screen and thus it can be organized by moving the thumb. The remote can also perceive pressure and, thus the remote can be pushed by the thumb for controlling TV.
The remote may be designed by integrating motion sensors including acceleration sensor and gyro sensor, but the company has not yet revealed the details yet.
