Damn, where did I put that remote? Sounds familiar right? Add a few more explicit words in there and you have an average day in my living room. It would be nice not to have to fumble around for the remote anymore, sorry Mr. Adler, may you rest in peace.

Toshiba has been developing a laptop-based camera gadget called “SpursEngine”, shown at CEATRC, which can detect motion and interpret these gestures to control a DVD player or even 3D graphic displays. The camera can see gestures made from up to 10 feet away, and means no more lost remotes, unless you lose your hands in a freak accident or something. — Andrew Dobrow
