It’s an inside joke that Israelis couldn’t communicate with one another if we couldn’t use our hands.

Playing to this strength, startup firm, eyeSight has developed technology to enable people to control their TV using hand gestures.

In a recent article on Wired UK, an eyeSight executive said:

[bra_blockquote align=””]We are working with Innodigital and other partners on natural gesture GUI libraries which will define a new standard in natural user interfaces. A wave can be used to signal bye-bye or hello, a flick of the wrist can signal the wish to go forward or back, global hand signs like OK or thumbs-up can be used within context.[/bra_blockquote]

eyeSight’s speciality is developing cutting-edge touch-free user interfaces and will partner with a Korean set-top box OEM to bring this new product to market.
