Hitachi showes off its gesture-based television, that’s controlled using your hands and no remote is required. Hitachi’s TVs will have Canesta’s single-chip-based 3-D sensors built into them, looking out at the room, collecting a 3-D image of everything it sees, and GestureTek created the software.
