Samsung Develops World's 1st 'Motion-Recognition' Phone

SEOUL, Jan. 12 (Yonhap) -- In the latest of a series of innovative product developments, South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. said Wednesday it has developed the world's first mobile phone with motion-recognition capability.

Using a six-axis sensor that it says can interpret simple human motions, the SCH-S310 phone allows users to dial phone numbers by writing the numbers into the air instead of pressing buttons, Samsung Electronics said in a statement.

The new device also enables users to delete unsolicited commercial text messages by shaking the phone up and down, the company said.


I would buy it just for that feature.
