Answer Calls without Touch with Air Call Answer
Remember that scene in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise controls the futuristic UI with various gestures done in free space? I don’t even remember too much of the actual plot of the movie, as the movie came out during my last year in high school, but I do remember one thing: Controlling things with air gestures is cool!
