Gmail Motion Beta

April 1, 20110 Comments

Following in the footsteps of the tactile responses needed to control the Xbox Kinect in the browser, Gmail have introduced a motion sensitive element to Gmail which eliminates the need for a mouse or keyboard interaction.

Using your computer’s built-in webcam and Google’s patented spatial tracking technology, Gmail can now detect your movements and translate them into meaningful characters and commands, a list of which can be found in this PDF.

This new motion detection technology is expected to be rolled out to the entire Google Docs platform later this year. ;o) April Fool!
