There’s no end to the technical wizardry on the near-horizon for new cars.

Toyota’s U.S. division head, Jim Lentz, announced that the company is working on gesture control for certain functions in the vehicle. Make a motion with your hand and you can adjust the volume of the radio, for instance.

Hopefully the system won’t misread your hand movement when you give in to road rage, if you know what we mean.

Believe it or not the engineers are currently testing this technology on a skateboard!

However, they’ve also have been developing an Insect, Smart Insect, that is, with on-board motion sensors.

It’s all pretty trick.
