If you ever wished to flip your TV channels with a mug of tea or a pen or a magic wand, the new gesture control technology is meant for you. Researchers from Lancaster University have developed a new technique that taps the body movement or motion of objects to let users seamlessly interact with screens.

The technique has an edge over its faulty predecessors as it doesn’t need any calibration with a body part or object, instead it gives remote control via interaction between movement and display, notes Futurism.

Researchers say that the “revolutionary” technology delivers a much more user-friendly experience, while handing down a “remote” to everyone in the room, writes Science Daily.
