I realize high-finance isn't on the minds of most of our readers, but would using Kinect gestures make you take more interest in your fiscal health? Me neither! But that's not stopping Lithuanian tech company Etronika from showing off a device that combines Microsoft's motion and voice sensing technology with your bank account.
According to PC World:
The interface has two rows of icons that spin as if on a carousel. Waving an arm to the left rotates the top row, and waving to the right rotates the bottom row. Users select an icon by bringing their hands together in front of them.
Etronika's demonstration at this week's CTIA conference showed a user paying a bill using hand gestures. The demo-er then held up his phone, and by waving his hand to the left, sent a copy of the bill to his phone.
We don't know when/if this tech will actually show up. Right now, Microsoft isn't allowing companies to sell Kinect products, but if this showed up on a future dashboard update, I wouldn't be surprised in the least. I'm kind of hoping for Kinect Banking: Now with Bears, honestly.
