Gesture recognition is a way for computers to begin to understand human body language and allowing us to use new types of user interfaces that greatly surpass text user interfaces and modern graphical user interfaces in their potential, ease of use, and intuitiveness.
Gesture recognition lets users communicate directly with their devices naturally without the need for any additional input devices. You can imagine yourself gesturing to raise a volume of your music or change TV channel with your own hands.
Today, gesture recognition is being applied primarily in gaming, consumer electronics and automotive sector. There is also a substantial potential for application in defense, healthcare and retail sectors.
Microsoft's Kinect has made its way into our living rooms when it was first released on February 1, 2012. It enables users to control and interact with their console/computer without the need for a game controller through gestures and spoken commands. This technology quickly found its way beyond just gaming and entertainment which led to a creation of Kinect for Windows. Combining the latest Kinect sensor and SDK, Kinect for Windows wants to bring an immersive voice and gesture solution to healthcare facilities, retail stores, public spaces, and more.
