Hand-gesture TV remote control

We have reached the peak of laziness: now people won't even have to look for the lost remote control on the living room's couch.

A team of scientists has unveiled a gesture-based control system for the television which uses only its own system of hand signals.

Similar to a previous concept developed by MIT, the system works by monitoring the "movements" of the lazy zapping person, and then reacts to a set of hand motions, such as the ones depicted in the picture.

In an attempt to reach the ridiculous of laziness, a similar device is also in development which allows its user to control almost all features of the television using a single thumb.
