Sony Vaio E 14P Notebook to Come with Gesture Control Capability

April 24, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Looks like Sony has decided to revolutionize the world with their new product, the Vaio E 14P! The device is being readied with gesture control functionality, a gorgeous design and cool new features.

The new notebook comes powered by a 2.3 GHz SandyBridge i3-2350M processor, and sports a 4 GB DDR3 RAM, AMD Radeon HD 7670M graphics card, and 500 GB Hard disk drive.

The 14-inch screen real estate boasts 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Running  Microsoft Windows 7 Home OS , the rig has on the connectivity front capabilities for WiFi and Bluetooth

Thrown in are a 3.5mm audio jack, USB 2.0, Mini display Port, VGA port, 9 in 1 media card reader.

The Sony Vaio E 14P carries along with it a backlit keyboard, outsized trackpad, and is run by a Lithium battery, which we guess is not anything big to write home about. The machine weighs 5 pounds and is 22mm thick.

But what truly sets it a class apart from the rest of the notebooks and competition is the above mentioned gesture control functionality, which allows the user to give commands to the computer through simple hand gestures like a wave of the hand.

You can flip through galleries and web pages by swiping your hand left or right, you can pause music playback with one hand and you can even increase or decrease playback audio volume using rotational hand movements.

Pretty ingenious, indeed! But initially, the gesture controls can only be used for the Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 9, PowerPoint and PowerDVD. However, it looks like a very interesting and useful app, and that does force us to expect it to be usable on other apps too in the near future.

Are you getting one of these notebooks for yourself?
