With the introduction of touch displays on many of today’s computing systems, people are finding and learning new ways of interacting with their machines.  But what if you could also use not only touch gestures, but hand signals to control your laptop/ultrabook.  That’s what you’ll get with an IdeaPad Yoga 11S convertible laptop.  Installed onto this device are some Lenovo propriety apps such as the Lenovo Motion Control and Lenovo Transition.  These programs enhance the computing experience and make the system a really unique computing solution.

I normally ignore most of the preloaded software in a PC because they tend to be cut from the same cloth, but Lenovo has inserted a few Yoga-specific apps worth mentioning. Lenovo Motion Control jumps on the motion-control bandwagon and lets you wave your hands across the screen to perform actions in a small set of programs — turning pages, skipping to the next music track, that sort of thing. It works reasonably well, but hardly seems groundbreaking.
