gesture based UI

    Aug 26 2009 | 4:00 pm
    hi - i´m new in c74 i try to realise a prototye with jitter wich is able to detect and track hand/finger gestures. Later i want to map them with a hand-sign_bib. Is there anybody with experience wich patches or objects will be usefull/nessesary for this project.
    thx from hamburg - germany

      gesture recognition is a fairly complex field of interaction. perhaps you should search google for general algorithms, and ask for help here trying to implement it.
      the wii-mote is a good interface to start with. in that case, you'll probably want to check out osculator to get the data from the wii-mote.
      jitter recipe 15 talks about gesture recording, which would be one of the first steps in the process:
      good luck.

      might be worth you looking at ircam's gesture follower:

      this is simple gesture finder for mouse, it can be used in tracker too
