‘It’s kind of like the Xbox Kinect but for a smartphone and with no added hardware,’ Ryan Fink, chief executive of OnTheGo, told MailOnline.

The phone has to be in landscape mode, then, you put your hand over the phone at least a foot to almost three feet away.

‘If you want to play or pause a song, you can put an open hand in front of the phone. Waving skips the song, while a wave in the other direction will take you to the previous track.
