Yet another demonstration of gestural interfaces is Amphorm, which anticipates a day when scientists will be able to make objects with shape-shifting materials.

The research showed that, compared to a keyboard and mouse, people have a far more emotional connection to objects when they manipulate them through gestures, said MIT researcher David Lakatos.
