Kinect hack lets you browse the web and control Windows 7 using gestures

by Dhiram Shah

Some bright minds at the MIT’s Media Lab Fluid Interfaces Group have developed the DepthJS an interactive system which lets Microsoft Kinect talk to JavaScript which in turn allows you to browse web pages. At the moment you cannot fulfill your Minority Report fantasy but this hack tells you that it surely is possible. MIT has company when it comes to gesture recognition, Evoluce’s solution (video after the jump) supports simultaneous multitouch and multiuser control of applications.
