Pantech Making Touch Screens a Thing of the Past

Pantech has announced today they will be integrating technology from eyeSight Mobile Technologies, an Israeli company, to bring gesture recognition to their Vega LTE line of mobile phones debuting in November. What's that mean? Basically, it's combining a Kinect and a cell phone together for the very first time. (Kinect, Mobile, Tech)

That's technically the past:
Similar gestures can be used with other parts of the human body already.

Face-tracking is on but, than there is foot tracking. I embedded one such example.

Gesture recognition on a device that's always within finger's reach for touch controls is a stupid idea. It's alright on something like a TV, since you wouldn't want to keep walking back and forth over to the TV, so devices like Kinect at least make sense in that aspect.
