Each year Samsung tries to improve the stylus in the Samsung Galaxy Note stylus, and this year the stylus has a new enigmatic feature called “Air Action Gestures”.

Fortunately for Note freaks, Samsung has launched the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 a whole week before the Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and the stylus appears to have the same feature.

It appears Samsung upgraded the Note 10 stylus with an accelerometer or gyroscope, allowing users to use Harry Potter-like gestures to change music tracks, advance to the next slide or more.

The feature can be seen demonstrated by Engadget in the video below:

Samsung is opening up the SDK for the feature, but I suspect few developers will expect users to wave their arms around several feet from their phone.

Do our readers see any use case for this gimmick? Let us know below.
