The article discusses the gesture technology in mobile phones. The use of the technology in mobile phones follows the success of gesture-operated Wii of Nintendo. The technology uses accelerometers which is an electromagnetic device that measures acceleration wherein the infrared beams sense the gestures of players to operate games. Aside from accelerometers, capacitive sensors are also being adapted to the mobile phone market.
