CES 2013: LG Finger Gesture control

1:12 /

Claiming more precise gesture control then competitor Samsung, LG's high-end TVs have camera that can respond when you give them the finger.

Hi I'm David Katzmaier from CNET. I'm at CES 2013, this is the LG booth and I'm here with one of the LG's new feature for their highest-end TVs, this is called Finger Gesture. LG is calling this a new way to control the TV's bio-gesture, a little bit more precise than using your hands, they say. This little camera on the top of the TV, when I hold up my finger, I can actually point using a little bit more precise action. Now, I tried it out, this demo isn't quite as precise as I'd like to see. In fact, my arm got pretty tired trying to wave around and figure out how it works. LG says that they will improve the technology when the TV comes to market. This is gonna be on the LA 8600 TV in the U.S. and higher models elsewhere. We're going in the system, you can see I can play with the games here. I can make menu selections and I can do a bunch of other things. They way it's activated, you just holdup your finger, make a little clicking motion and then kinda wave it around the screen. So, very basic, of course if you misplace your remote control, it might be a little handy. The motion remote that LG includes is a lot more precise than this finger thing but again it's a pretty novel way to control your television. I'm David Katzmaier for LG's Finger Gesture feature, CES 2013.
