Would you wear this to watch TV?
Television remotes and games controllers could be a thing of the past with new technology that can be worn like a [rather bulky] wristwatch.
British researchers have developed the sensor which tracks the 3D movement of the hand and allows you to remotely control any device.
You can interact while moving from room to room or even running down the street and because it's a multi-purpose gizmo, it'll help you change channels and answer your phone at the same time.
The inventors say they had to understand their own body parts first, before they could formulate their workings mathematically and they spent hours staring at their fingers and reading up on the biomechanical properties of the human hand.
Now, if they could just make it easier on the eye - and the wrist - they could be onto a winner, though imagine the chaos if every quick-fingered channel surfer in the room had one!
