You mean I have to move part of my body instead of just pressing my thumb against a button as the remote lies on my couch? :icon_thumbsdown: :icon_thumbsdown:

and I have to learn a whole bunch of gestures to make it work? :icon_thumbsdown: :icon_thumbsdown:

That's complex technology making me work harder to do something.

It's NOT funny!

Ivan.......I don't want any device in my home watching me through a camera lens connected to the web. Nope, not going to happen. It is a potential intrusion which can be used for nefarious intent. No matter the touted convenience, it's much too Orwellian for me.

Samsung had that problem with their gesture controls. It watched the people in the room and the people didn't like it.


Also, suppose someone stretches or something that the tv picks up as a gesture to do something when it was an unintended gesture?

The entire idea is terribly flawed.

What would it do to the odd relaxed scratch?

I don't like being watched.

Even though I have the camera turned off, I don't trust anybody outside the house who might gain access so I covered the camera with a band-aid.

It works better than black electrical tape because the camera can still pick up ambient light levels and adjust the keyboard lighting.
