Leap Motion gesture control may hit mobile devices in Q3 2014

Gesture controls are something that we already have on some mobile devices, but right now the implementation of gesture controls is very basic. You can swipe or scroll, but that's about it. The input options are limited, the accuracy isn't so great, and the functionality has only specific times where it makes sense to use. However, Leap Motion wants to revolutionize gesture control, and plans to do so in mobile devices late in 2014...

Nice, quite similar to this I am working on my final year Project called 'Tablet Smart Control'. Making use of Theremins and mapping the change in frequency as cursor on the tablet screen. I made it as an alternative to Spen on galaxy Note lineup.
Anyway nice to know that these technologies are under development.

Samsung need to buy them and integrate it into their 2015 flagships. Replace the capacitive and physical buttons with gesture control, S6 and Note 5 would be light years ahead then.

I'm thinking no note keyboards or mice. The tablet is now the new laptop/PC replacement

Nokia is working with this kind of technology. If the rumor is true, they will show it at MWC in February. Feels like every company will go nuts in 2014. Good for us customers :)
