Apple filed a patent for multi-touch surfaces with touch-free proximity sensors, which means we could see Apple devices with gesture-based input in the future.

The patent, which you can view on the website of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and was surfaced by Apple Insider, details Apple’s work on technology that lets users interact with computers using hover events — described in the patent as “the no-touch, close proximity hovering of fingers or other objects above a touch-sensitive surface but outside the near-field detection capabilities of touch sensors.”
