Symbian Moove – Switch music tracks using hand gestures

14. April 2010 at 13:13

Symbian Moove is a cool little application that lets you control your music playback on your S60 5th Edition device without actually touching the phone. Based on the revolutionary eyeCan technology, you can control the UI by simply hovering your hand over your device. A simple hand gesture can silent an incoming call, navigate between GPS menus, activate the MP3 player and more. With Symbian Moove, simply place your hand over the phone to get the music started. Then you can place your hand over the phone again to pause, or slide your hand above the phone to skip to the next song. Check out the video demo of the app in action after the break.
