Can't Touch This... Coming Soon - Sony Xperia sola

Touchscreen? That's so last century! Well, almost. Seeing as how touchscreens are now almost standard, and developers are trying to make bets on the next big interface it's only natural to start seeing new ways to interact with your mobile device.

Apple has brought voice command into the spotlight with Siri.

Others are trying for motion based controls.

Sony Ericsson Mobile has introduced a new twist on the touchscreen called "floating touch" (Such a catchy name) in their new Xperia sola.

Adding to the regular gestures of touch screen technology, floating touch introduces a "hover" mode. Much like moving the mouse around before clicking, it allows you to see exactly which link/button/key you're about to press before actually pressing it. Touch is still required to register a click/tap.

Coming soon!
