Comments on GestIC Gesture Recognition Controller Uses Electrical Fields
'...now all you had to do was wave your hand in the general direction of the components and hope.'- Douglas Adams, 1979. (Read the complete story)

"This has to be related to the Theremin. A musical instrument which generates tones according to hand positions in a field."
(Peter Jacobs 11/14/2012 10:53:12 PM)
"Peter beat me to it! My thoughts exactly. I bet there will be some desktop theremins in the near future now."
(Zac Hunter 11/16/2012 8:59:23 AM)
"Zac, I love the idea of a desktop theremin. Forget all those executive toys - soon, office chatter will cease to listen to the unworldly tones of the theremin! Peter, let's hope that the theremin is no longer covered by any patents - otherwise this new gesture technology is in trouble."
