Although touchscreen technology only recently became a necessary part of our day-to-day gadgets, it may be already on its way out, thanks to the swipe technology introduced by Korean-based Pantech's new smartphone, the Sky Vega LTE 4G.

To operate this Android phone, all you need is the ability to move your hand. The Sky Vega LTE phone lets you take calls and perform other functions all by simply waving or swiping your hand over the phone's screen. In addition, the phone is also the world's best resolution LTE smartphone, says AdWeek.

This kind of technology is perfect for times you don't want to touch your phone's screen. For instance, it will come in handy when you're eating something greasy or when you have a hand full of cake batter, as in this commercial by Pantech for the Vega LTE.
