Fails even armchair usability tests. Gestures are easier. One could also
think about a hand mouse, with scroll wheel(s), thumb pad area, etc. UWB
should be low enough power for sufficiently long battery time at the range.

Don't forget voice input, too, it's easier than limb tracking from video.
I'm not sure whether using immobile CPU for crunch will fly, it will restrict
usability outside of home.

Otoh, there's always the disparity how much crunch you can get for the given
battery time.
