Open source gesture based computing

Graham Attwell, Pontydysgu, Nov 25, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have long thought mouse gestures would be a great way to drive an interface. Now there's an open source set of tools that will help you build this functionality. "Called DepthJS, the software is on GitHub and open for collaboration. Check out the video above. It looks pretty good. Some of the gestures appear more dramatic than I would want to use to navigate the web with, but perhaps that will change in time. If a gesture-based interface could capture text input as well, that would be even cooler. Cursor motion alone, however, is all it takes to evoke a vision of the future in which Kinect-like devices are used to control all kinds of web-connected devices."
