Control your television with any object

A way of turning any object into a remote control has been developed.
The Matchpoint system, developed by Lancaster University, only needs a webcam and a chosen object.
Once synchronised, the user can change the volume, channel or access menus.
It is hoped the tool could also be used by people who are unable to use a keyboard and mouse or a remote control or existing gesture techniques.

That's a great idea. I'm always a fan of developing techniques to be more inclusive to people living with disabilites.
