Toshiba’s new Qosmio laptop is the only gesture-aware computer on the consumer market. Software loaded on the laptop lets users control Microsoft programs like PowerPoint and the Windows Media Player with just a wave of the hand. Using a webcam built into the screen, the computer can distinguish three gestures–a raised palm, a moving fist, or a thumb flick–from up to 10 feet away.
