lol I know what you mean. This will be a very cool thing to do. If Qualcomm can make this work just like Minority Report then that would be excellent. The dude on the video was flapping his hands just to move from pic to pic. If one big motion can move multiple pics that would be easier that the constant flapping the poor dude had to do to get to the pic he wanted. lol There is strong potential there though.

Hell yeah. I would always use that tech so I can have less finger prints on my phone. Imagine a phone with no finger prints what so ever! lol

lol true it will look like new everytime, can you imagine if it had fingerprint recognition so no one else can mess with your phone. its a stretch of my imagination but anything is possible with the way technology is going.
