Imagine using your arm as a iPhone keyboard - that's the concept of a new computer system by Microsoft called Skinput.

Using sign-language-like movements, you could control a gadget in your pocket through a Bluetooth connection.

It would also allow you to send text messages by tapping your arm in certain places, but don't expect Skinput to hit the market for another 2 to 7 years.
