If you recall, the Nokia Lumia 1020 was the 41MP camera with a phone bolted to it that was released last year. Nokia is following up their unique product with a new version which will incorporate Kinect sensors into the phone and called it "3D Touch" or "Real Motion". Nokia sees possible usages such as turning on the phone by grabbing it and to hover your finger over a Live Tile and tap down in the air to bring up sub-menus. Combine gestures with Bluetooth and you will never again know if that strange person on the street is a hipster or hallucinating. Catch more at The Inquirer.
"KINECT TECHNOLOGY reportedly will debut on Windows Phone this year, with the sensors set to appear in the sequel to the Nokia Lumia 1020."
