Pantech is looking to pull itself out of the low-end budget phone ditch by bringing some pretty awesome non-touch gesture recognition to Android. Imagine this: you're working on a car, cleaning the kitchen, painting... anything that where you're hands are going to dirty or wet and you don't want to touch your phone. You receive an incoming call -- what do you do? How cool would it be to simply wave your hand over the device to answer? No touching. No getting it wet or dirty.
Sure, that sounds cool, but now you want to see it in action. You're in luck! Check it out:
This technology will be included in Pantech's upcoming Vega smartphone, which will, unfortunately, probably be exclusive to Korea. Let's just hope they decide to release a high-end device with this feature into other markets in the future.
