IPod’s Touchless Touchscreen


What if the entire surface of your iPod was a screen, and you could wave your fingers over different parts of the screen to call up different controls? Depending on what you were doing, you could manipulate a virtual scroll-wheel or get a keyboard to pop up. What’s more, you could do this without actually touching the screen or getting it all smudged up. You could be typing in air just above the screen, and the movement of your fingers would be causing each key on the screen to enlarge as you “tap” it.

I don’t know how cool this is going to be yet, but if it works good, I think it will get a lot of attention. Not much more to say about this right now ???

    Hi everyone.
    What's a good alternative to the IPOD?
    I'm wondering if any of you can recommend a good MP3 player that is comparable to the IPod but WITHOUT they hype and price tabe to go with it.
    I was at the apple store a few days ago, and really liked the new 40GB or 80GB IPods that also show video, but was wondering if I could get the same kind of funcationality without that heftly price tag.

    I do have to say that I absolutely love my 80GB IPod. It was a little pricey, but very worth it. Podcasts are awesome and the ability to watch my videos on it are great.
