Remember when you had to click actual buttons to do anything on your cellphone? Those days are long gone thanks to the touch screens that now adorn every smartphone and tablet. But, those touch screens could be a thing of past due to project Project Soli, the new Google technology that could leave tapping and swiping in the dust.

Project Soli is Google's futuristic new technology that would allow people to control gadgets without ever touching them. Instead, users would just have to make gestures in the air to send texts, browse the Web or check email.

Google's Advanced Technology and Projects Lab is spearheading the project. It's not ready for mass production yet, but Google has unveiled a prototype.
