Touchless Living The move from contact-based to contact-free innovation Implications - The last few years have seen an incredible rise in touch-based technology, with a large number of consumers embracing touch-activated devices and innovations for their convenience and aesthetic appeal. The next direction in tech design, however, eliminates the need for contact completely. These devices, which typically operate via motion, can offer a fun way to engage the body -- something that is proven by the growing popularity of motion-activated games like Microsoft's Kinect -- as well as provide users with even more convenience since their hands are free for other activities.
