    I don't know if anyone has posted about this yet. Very Minority Report/Gestures.

    Atlas Gloves

    Atlas Gloves is a DIY physical interface for controlling 3D mapping applications like Google Earth. The user interface is a pair of illuminating gloves that can be used to track intuitive hand gestures like grabbing, pulling, reaching and rotating. The Open Source Atlas Gloves application can be downloaded here and operated from home using a webcam and two self-made illuminating gloves. The video tracking functionality is written within the Processing programming framework, in conjunction with JAVA library. This robot library converts a special video tracking vocabulary into mouse clicks/releases and cursor movement in order to control the computer.
