I want to buy moto x and am wondering with although fantastic x8 processor does moto x is future proof for at least 2 years? Or should I go for nexus 5 which is more future proof? How about touchless control? One of the main factors I am buying is because of that

Some people still use 3 or 4 year old devices. My S2 still works fine.

If you're a hardcore cutting edge gamer....then you'll maybe need a phone every year or less....but the moto x can do anything any other device can do now, and probably still will 3 years from now.

But ultimately its your research and decision that matters, not any of us. We all have different needs and expectations.

Motorola will probably keep the software updated until Jan/Feb 2015. After that, who knows?

I would wait until May 13 to find out when the Moto X + 1 releases.

I agree with @nijom, define "future proof".. The X is as "future proof" as any other android device where the carrier has the final say in the updates being pushed to the device.

Unless you get a developer edition X which can be bootloader unlocked, and you can flash custom roms to it. Although options for 3rd party roms are relatively few at the moment, and you'd lose the Moto specific features which make the X so popular.
