Apple have announced that they are investigating hover gestures as a multi-touch alternative in a recent patent. They have also been granted a patent which describes a method for detecting and interpreting real-world gestures on “touch and hover sensitive devices.”

As I read through the documentation I was stunned to see the wide range of gestures they are looking into. I thought I would create a little video to show the gestures in action, inspired by Blonde Redhead’s Top Ranking, called ‘One Gesture Per Second.’
