Land Rover Is Experimenting With Touchless Touch Screens

Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it has patented a “predictive touch” technology which essentially lets you use touchscreen controls without your finger actually coming in contact with the screen surface. Seems like a great solution for fingerprints, though I’m skeptical it won’t be frustrating.

This idea for predictive touch, reportedly co-developed with the University of Cambridge, is being pitched as both a COVID-19 related solution and a driver-distraction minimizer.
