Apple has filed a patent for a type of gesture control system that it is calling a “3D user interface”. The technology would allow users to control a computing device with body movements alone, with no need to touch a keyboard, mouse, or screen.

The patent diagram shows a person sat at a desktop computer, using hand and arm movements to a webcam to control the device, suggesting the technology is likely to be implemented on Apple’s iMacs, rather than popular touchscreen mobile devices iPhone and iPad.

Analysts for Global Equities Research even speculated that the gesture control system could be a part of a new gaming console or a new iteration of Apple TV.
