Interestingly, they were far ahead of their time in the TOS pilots.

In "The Cage" / "The Menagerie" Spock was doing his "power point" presentation of the Talos star group by the move of his right hand without touching a panel or a button.

And in "Where No Man Has Gone Before" Gary Mitchell just activated a component on his console by letting his hand pass over the console without ever touching it.

Unfortunately, in "The Corbomite Maneuver" they went back to the traditional pushing of buttons.
