Using your hands to change channel a la Minority Report, but I think there is something that does all that a little better. Its called a remote control.

Its easier to lift a finger than lift an arm...

TV's don't really need full body 3D tracking, just hand tracking would do, which can be done on any £10 webcam. Voice recognition could also be done with a simple microphone and, let's face it, even with Apple behind the tech, its not really at the point where everyone can use it without a hitch now anyway.

I'd prefer smartphone/tablet integration tech to a camera in my TV. Being able to stream whatever is on my TV to my phone/tablet would be fantastic, especially if you could control channels, volume etc with touch.

Give me an app for that, oh, and a REAL ice cream sammich!
