Video browser system that responds to hand gesture commands

Researcher demonstrates a video browser system that responds to hand gestures

A researcher at the Integrated Media Systems Center (IMSC) at the University of Southern California demonstrates a "video browser" system that responds to hand gesture commands for videos shown on the computer.

A video shown on the computer screen can be started, paused or stopped with different hand gestures by the user, who wears special gloves that provide data to the system. In addition, hand gestures can reduce or enlarge the video window.

This project demonstrates IMSC's pattern recognition and pattern isolation techniques with the goal of developing a more natural way for users to interact with computers. IMSC is a National Science Foundation-supported Engineering Research Center. (Year of image: 2002)
