The Pantech Vega is already a high-end device, with a 4.5-inch display with 1280×800 resolution, dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a 1830mAh battery and NFC support. Now on top of the powerhouse phone add some touchless gestures used to control your music player and answer calls.
The touchless gestures are demonstrated by a Korean women who has her hands filled with cookie dough and swipes her hand above the phone to answer a call, watch for yourself.
Now, you may not be in Korea to get this phone or may not want the phone how can you get touchless gestures on your device? We have an answer download an app called prox. It is $1.50 in the market and you must be rooted.
Prox is a gesture based service that allows you to control certain aspects of your phone without even touching it. You can launch applications, expand and contract your status bar, and even silence your phone. All of this is done by simply waving your hand close to the phone. Imagine the possibilities and the look of amazement on friends faces when you turn your screen off without ever touching a button or the screen :)
Now this may not work on all phones but he gives a warning and a way to find out if it will.
Your phone must have a proximity sensor for this to work! ALL PROXIMITY SENSORS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!!! Users with a dual purpose ambient light sensor for proximity usage may have unintended bugs!
Note: If you are running any custom ROM, this may not work correctly. Please verify that your proximity sensor is functional before downloading this…
Here is a short tutorial of how Prox works made by the developer himself.
If you try it out let us know how you like it or if it works by tweeting to us @landofdroid we would greatly appreciate it.
