JVC's new TV likes applause

A television that dynamically responds to clapping and applause? This new set from electronics manufacturer JVC allows users to control many standard functions by clapping and gesturing. Think of it as a sort of combination between a Nintendo Wii and a "Clap on / Clap Off" light fixture. The TV has a set of sensors that is able to memorize commands based on human hand / arm waving and the sound of clapping. You could, for example, program the device to flip to CNN every time you clap twice. It also responds to gestures, allowing you to select on-screen prompts by moving your arm. No word on when we can expect this technology to trickle down to the consumer level, but we’re pretty excited nonetheless. Bye bye remote control
