following on the idea of having a controler, they could be how the people interact with the house, so each person would have one e.g bracelet. I would envisage a limited number of functions could be carried out through gestures without requiring a screen, e.g lighting and room temperature and phone/intercom. a limited umber of functions to toggle between and operate by movement [almost 13 years ago]

In a home scenario: In a similar method to scrolling apps on an iphone/ipad, if the information was presented on a screen or projection then that would be an easy fit for a person to gesture control a home computer system, which can control almost all areas of a home, from security cameras, tv, lighting music etc [almost 13 years ago]
