[ENGLISH] from MIT researchers develop the most fabulous gesture control technique yet [Engadget]
When looking for a cheap, reliable way to track
gestures, Robert Wang and Jovan Popovic of MIT’s Computer Science
and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory came upon this notion: why not
paint the operator’s hands (or better yet, his Lycra gloves) in a manner
that will allow the computer to differentiate between different parts
of the hand, and differentiate between the hand and the background?
Starting with something that Howie Mandel might have worn in the 80s,
the researchers are able to use a simple webcam to track the hands’
locations and gestures — with relatively little lag. The glove itself
is split into twenty patches made up of ten different colors, and while
there’s no telling when this technology will be available for consumers,
something tells us that when it does become available it’ll be very
hard not to notice. Video after the break.
Update: Just received a nice letter from Rob Wang, who points out that his website is the place to see more videos, get more info, and — if you’re lucky — one day download the APIs so you can try it yourself. What are you waiting for?
