No more fingerprints.

Apple is considering future iPhone models with some drastic changes in design. The Bloomberg report details two major differences to the current iPhone lineup, although it sounds like the projects are tentative and experimental; at the very least these features are still years away from shipping.

The report says Apple is testing an iPhone display that can detect gestures from fingers without actually touching the screen, almost like ‘hovering’ over a UI element.

A hover could be bovver
With listeners standing close by
Touch screen might spoil the sheen
But must be safer - you know why.

I like that rhyme
It's very natty
sensitive touchscreens
drive me batty!

English poets
are known to be terse
'though touchscreens are bad
bad poetry is worse

Roland had hand control man years ago. Waving your hand near the keyboard controlled some features.
Dr, Fran would remember what I am talking about.

I didn't think our poetry was that excruciating
But Shakespeare in his grave may now be rapidly rotating
I thought I'd have a try at writing lines a little longer
But now I think I need a beer or maybe something stronger!

Jupp, I think it was called D-Beam, it also was on my G-70, but somehow I never used it seriously.
Is it still a 'hit' at Roland keyboards?
