Tony Stark in Iron Man2 using Hand Gestures
Do you remember Iron Man 2 in which Tony Stark uses Hand Gestures in air to create and design his robot suit. Though it has not become reality yet but many companies are researching on this great technology to bring out the best way to make it possible. Researchers are trying to use many sensors and other high tech devices to do this, but Robert Wang a student at MIT has showcased his very simple way to implement Gesture control system which only uses a pair gloves and a webcam which tracks the hands. This make the technology inexpensive and simple.

The gloves are colorful and weird looking but there lies the concept because the color patterns are processed by the computer software and helps computer in recognizing the 3D shape of hand. When the gloves are worn then the person can move and change the objects on screen.
If research continues at same pace then get ready to see this technology being used in games and many other applications real soon in future.
