Samsung's 2014 Smart TV Range To Support Hand Gestures, Much Like Kinect
Another major step forward is the integration and improvement of motion control. For 2014 models, a "finger gesture" mode has been added, enabling users to change the TV channel, adjust the volume, find and select what they want to watch just by using their fingers. They can also go back to the previous screen and stop the video by motioning their finger counterclockwise. In many ways, this is Samsung integrating some of the aspects that have made Kinect so useful in the living room, and we suspect that a lot of other TV manufacturers will be following suit.
We'll have to wait until the show floor opens before we know more about what's powering these sets, but at a glance, televisions could be lined up for quite the surge at CES.
