“The challenge with gesture control, as one panelist put it, is that we don’t have any universal body language for a lot of the actions we’d want gesture control to accomplish. For example, there’s no widely shared gesture that means ‘turn it off,’ so programmers would need to invent one, and then hope users would be willing to learn it.”
