    Google May Be Developing Motion Interface for Android (click for full article)

    "A patent filing made public last week suggests that Google is working to turn a device's front-facing camera into a motion-input system, allowing consumers to use gestures instead of greasing up the screen with fingerprints.

    If granted, the company could reportedly take this patent down several avenues, including incorporating the technology into Android itself, saving the tech for Motorola, or hording the patent for use against rivals Apple and Microsoft."

    From the article: "Google may also branch out and make this a standard feature in Android altogether, offering a native motion-sensing client for Google TV manufacturers. There's also that rumored entertainment system that may also take advantage of gestures as well."
