Gesture based interaction is next 10 years, for sure. Started from Sony (Nintendo Wii), Apple (iphone) & now its turn of Microsoft (Project Natal). Microsoft as come up with an extension of XBOX which is completely gesture based. Interesting thing is, it does not require any remote like Nintendo Wii & its works on a camera recognition which recognizes full body gestures.

   ” Natal is controller-free, using what looks like a TV-mounted camera/microphone bar to sense motion, sound, and even 3D movement, suggesting that the technology involved is far beyond that of products like Sony’s PlayStation Eye “
