Intel TV reference design gets gesture software

I just love the non-line-of-sight-operation of a remote control of a TV. Putting a infra-red receiver on a product can be tricky in order to ensure the reception is adequate. I have experienced that I have to point a remote control to the left hand corner, out of the TV, to make a channel or volume change. It can be annoying. With the RF remote control, the alignment issue will just be gone. The production quality will be easier to control. The challenge is to avoid changing TV channel in the bedroom while I actually want to change channel in the living room. Device pairing and long ID will solve the problem. ;) I love to hear more about "Hillcrest's Freespace pointing and motion control technology".
