Samsung Introduces 3D Motion Interface on Phone
Jan 12, 2005, 4:07 PM by (staff)
Samsung today announced the SCH-S310 for Korea, which has accelerometers to recognize movement of the phone in three dimensions. The 3D interface will let a user dial a number by drawing it in the air with the phone. The S310 can also recognize additional commands drawn in the air such as answering dialogs with a circle for yes and an X for no. For fun, the phone has a "beat box" mode, which lets a user shake out a beat that the S310 can play back in the voice of a number of different instruments - drums, tambourines, etc. In addition to the 3D interface, the phone has many features common to advanced handsets in the South Korean market. It has a streaming music player, 1.3 megapixel camera, mobile banking, as well as GPS with a magnetic compass sensor.
I Can See It Now...
Voice Dial vs Waving Phone Around to call people
Arrgh (Mr T.)
Or maybe its some big conspiracy for people to buy a phone, make it really slippery, so when people go to wave it around it'll fly out of their hands resulting in it shattering into pieces. But they'll have liked the phone so much and the attention they got from it, that they'll go and buy another, only to have that one shatter as well, sooner or later. Crazy idea... but ya never know.

P.S. The other game phone in the video is made by LG (another Korean phone maker)
Dumb & Dumber
Dumber - The idiot who buys & use's it!
You will look really spastic, waving your phone around to dial it.
Maybe dueling phones for in interactive sword fight?
Oh well... it takes all kinds.
FUN FOR ALL FIVE YEAR OLDS!!!!
I like the new picture, Rich
They did not mention but i wonder if the is feature might help radio reception in the future. If the radio knows where it is going then it and the base station might be able to best optimize the link quality.
while i don't know exactly what people might do with this today, i do think this is very creative and i'd expected to become important in the future.
