Who needs Apple’s much rumored and much debated “smart” TV set? Apparently no one who gloms on to a settop box that will soon be offered by an Israeli company, eyeSight, and manufactured by a Korean company, Innodigital. Called the nTobeBox, the product will allow any TV set to be controlled by hand gestures. It also allows the set to stream content from the Internet, make and receive ordinary phone calls and video calls over Skype, surf the Web, use a remote like a keyboard and use hand gestures as a mouse. The device runs on the newest version of Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
