Apple Inc. (AAPL) Can Have Gesture Control In Its Products: Find Out How?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has filed a control patent on a technology that can read 3D physical gestures. CNBC’s Morgan Brennan reported that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has filed the patent on gesture reading technology, but she was not sure if we will be seeing the technology in an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) product anytime soon. PC MAC Editor-in-chief Dan Costa talked on CNBC about the patent and what it means to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Costa said that he was impressed with how broad the patent is. He thinks that the patent Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has broader claims and covers a lot of stuffs. He mentioned that he was surprised at the broadness considering the amount of development done by others in the segment. He feels that this patent is a result of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) buying PrimeSense in November. PrimeSense also had developed Kinect system for Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) which is currently being used in Xbox. He thinks that this will bring a whole new phase of technology evolution for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Costa thinks that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) already has a good hold in touch technology and keyboards for Macbooks, but he feels that the gesture technology would bring a whole new level of products from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is well known for filing patents, but not all of them make it to the products, so question arises if this technology would fall under that category. Costa doesn’t think so.

“I am a bit of optimist. I think eventually find its way into the mix. So far it hasn’t had a huge response that Kinect was a little underwhelming. Pretty good for gaming, but not a lot of other users. [..] The thing with Apple is they don’t force interface where they don’t belong. They never forced a touch screen onto their laptops because they didn’t think that worked. So I think they are going to wait and they are going to find, where it really makes sense. I think it is going to go really well with the living room computing,” Costa said.

He thinks that this sensor technology can be added a whole variety of products like living room, iMac’s, television, etc. He thinks that this technology can be a product of Apple TV in future. He thinks that gesture control in combination with voice control could form a good hybrid technology and replace remote controls.

He said that having a patent this broad will make Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) a big player in the space.
