Resource Type Date
Demo 2012-06-01


This demo has been developed in the FascinatE project.

The following video shows a little tutorial about how to control a TV display without any remote device, but using your hands and doing some specific gestures:


 The following video shows only the static gestures part of the previous demo, but also with multiple users:
