Another aspect that does not make sense is that the very very few consumers do actually use multiple mass transit systems running in different cities/countries. So if you're using two apps, it does not make sense to learn a third app, so you dont have to use the two apps that you learned earlier.

HERE?
With HERE now rumored to be bought by a group of automakers, it's weird that it would be involved in a mass transit program -- weird, but I guess consistent with the way things work in the corporate world.

Re: the clapper
Ah okay. Wasn't sure if you were gesturing to your phone or the device itself to make it work...either way, could get messy.

I, personally, do the full-on fatheads, music and recordings every single time I leave, Home Alone style. Better safe than sorry.

Re: the clapper
Well, to quote Senic's website, their gizmo "can respond to gesture-based inputs for touchless control". So the answer to your question, Sarah, is "yes", I suppose. Personally speaking, my favoured smart-home intruder-deterrent technique is leaving Radio 4 on at full blast when I'm out - works a treat, particularly if 'Moneybox Live' is on. (One for our UK readers there.)

the clapper
What does Senic mean by controlling IoT with gestures? Are we talking "clap-on, clap-off" type of stuff here?
