Pioneer’s latest Raku Navi (“Easy Navigation”) was revealed at the CEATEC conference in Japan this week. The navigation system features an “Air Gesture Sensor” embedded in the seven-inch touchscreen. By simply holding your finger in front of the screen, the display is able to bring up a small overlay of the command buttons and location information. By moving your hand left or right, you’re also able to zoom in and out of the map.

Although the gesture-controlled navigation provides quick access to essential information, it doesn’t entirely mean drivers can take their eyes off the road as a majority of commands still require to be accessed via the touchscreen. The Raku Navi AVIC-MRZ009 will be out in Japan next week and is expected to retail for around $1,600.
