Google Chrome extension allows Kinect to control the browser with gestures

Kinect sensor used in a Google Chrome extension - awesomeness at work

I really love Google Chrome - and more so now, a group of students from MIT Media Lab Fluid Interfaces Group have turned the Kinect motion controller into a tool for browsing the internet.




They have written an extension for Chrome called DepthJS - which allows you to use the internet with gestures. Interestingly, making a fist is used for selecting while a swatting motion is used for scrolling.


There was also a video showing a Munich-based company called Evoluce - they show off Windows 7 applications being controlled through Kinect - pretty amazing results this early on in the game.
