At CES: Wearable tech for training your successor

Industrial uses find their way into a consumer electronics show.

Gesture-control technologies were evident at CES, and if there's a technology that has as much business as consumer use, it's the gesture control cursor from Motix.

Brent Safer, a software engineer, invented the device and his company will begin selling it next month. The Motix cursor is controlled by pointing with a finger while a person types away. In the front of the keyboard is a small device that uses infrared technology to capture movements.

"I wanted a tool to make everything easier, whether it be scrolling, filling out forms, navigating through my software," said Safer. The idea is to work faster. "If I want to click on something, I don't have to take my hands off the keyboard," he said.
