Gesture Interfaces: Wi-Fi Waves For Diverse Spaces

A bit more than a year ago, I published a news writeup that covered an alternative (i.e. non-vision-based) gesture interface derived from the partnership work of Microsoft Research and the University of Washington. I wrote:

Gesture-Enabled User Interfaces: Soon To Be Mainstream On Smartphones And Tablets?

Back in late September, I told you about Movi.Kanti.Revo, a client-side-rendered, HTML5- and web browser-based, and gesture interface-implemented application co-developed by Cirque du Soleil and Google. For the moment, at least, Movi.Kanti.Revo is only supported on conventional computers (along with a limited set of browsers, at that).

The Society For Information Display Showcases Gesture Interfaces

If you're located in or near Silicon Valley (or aren't, but have access to a computer), are interested in gesture-based user interfaces, and don't have any plans for tomorrow evening, this post is for you. The Bay Area SID (Society for Information Display) chapter sponsors monthly technical seminars on various display-related topics, for SID members and non-members alike.

The Cyber-Circus: A Google-Powered Gesture Interface Showcase

Earlier this year, during a keynote at the Google I/O developer conference, company representatives demonstrated an under-development HTML5- and CSS-based web application called Movi.Kanti.Revo, co-developed with Cirque du Soleil. As of a week ago, it's now available for you to try out for yourself.

The Gesture Interface: Its Near-Quarter-Century Old Potential Birthplace

Not to take anything away from Nintendo, who created a game console user interface mainstream breakthrough with the Wii Remote, but the company's products to at least some degree stood on the shoulders of forebears. As evidence, check out the above video, which The Verge published earlier this month.

Leap Motion: Garnering Software Developer Devotion

Back in late May, I introduced you to Leap Motion, the hardware developer of an upcoming gesture interface peripheral for computers (and perhaps, in the future, other devices). At the time, I mentioned:

Samsung's Smart TVs: Here Come The Gesture Interface APIs

Remember those camera-inclusive televisions unveiled by Samsung at January's CES, which have caused no shortage of controversy, along with at least one humorous (albeit arguably sexist) commercial?

Quadrotors And Other Drones: Gesture Interfaces Send Them Off And Bring Them Home

The July issue of Wired Magazine, which I received in the mail just the other day, contains an excellent cover story which I commend to your attention.

CEVA And eyeSight: A Silicon-Plus-Software Gesture Interface Combination Done Right

Back in late November, I reported that gesture interface middleware developer eyeSight had received a notable funding injection from processor core provider CEVA.

Samsung's Galaxy S III: A Smartphone That Takes Embedded Vision Seriously

Back in early May, I dedicated a news writeup to Samsung's just-announced and latest-generation Galaxy S III smartphone, by virtue of its abundance of embedded vision talents.
