Another gesture control approaches the market

Mgestyk has obviously sold some vowels to the devil in exchange for tech savvy.  They plan on offering a complete gesture control interface, compatible with any Windows application.  Check out their site (link below) and view their video.  Their target market is gamers, so the price is expected to be low, about that of a “high-end webcam”.  The development kit will allow you to devise gestures of your own and connect them with the input commands of any application; perfect for those of us who are not too snappy with a keyboard and mouse.  It seems able to detect how many fingers each of your hands is showing, and it can distinguish a wave to the left from a wave to the right, but we’d guess that full-speed sign language recognition is not ready yet.
