Submission + - Apple Researching Touchless Control of iOS Devices (

tekgoblin writes: "A recent patent application has surfaced which shows that Apple is currently researching way to control your iOS device from a distance using physical gestures. The exact title of the patent reads: “Real Time Video Process Control Using Gestures.”

The idea of the patent that Apple filed is to allow a user to remotely control either their iPhone or iPad with the other device while editing video or recording video. The devices would be linked either through Bluetooth or WiFi. So, once the devices were linked to each other, Say the iPad is recording video you could control that with the iPhone as to not interrupt the display on the iPad."
