Submission + - Apple patents Kinect (wired.com)

Virtual_Raider writes: Apple patented a method to control an iPad using "3D Gestures", which basically are nothing but hand waving like "hand swirls and swipes". From TFA:
"As suggested by a newly uncovered Apple patent, you would be able to manipulate and control graphical elements on your display, such as icons, media files, text and images. The gestures themselves could take many forms: geometric shapes (e.g., a half-circle or square), symbols (like a check mark or question mark), the letters of the alphabet, and other sorts of predetermined patterns."

I guess these guys better come up with other ideas.
