It was reported just last month that Microsoft had claimed that it was making great progress on new touchless technology that would allow users to interact with their smart devices without actually needing to touch them. Microsoft noted that they had a number of prototypes in the works at the moment, including an electronic bracelet that will track users' finger movements and then communicate the inputs to a smart device wirelessly and more. Rico Malvar, Microsoft's chief scientist, said work had begun on new screens that could be manipulated without needing to approach a gadget. That's true and today we present you with Microsoft's patent pending invention covering touchless input for mobile devices which may be closer to reality than most of think. It's not going to be something a decade away, it's something that could be in the market in the next few years if not much sooner.
