I hope not, do they not realise how annoying something like that would be? Imagine you're in the living room with someone and they start yelling "Record! next channel! on! off! menu!", or worse...they have to wave their hands like Kinect for anything to happen.

I have no problem with smartphone apps but voice recognition and gesture controls should stay away. It's more hassle than it's worth. It's just so..unnecessary.
