Continuing coverage of the April 1 video out of Mark Bolas’ MxR Lab here at ICT that turns Google’s Gmail Motion spoof into a working prototype…
The New York TimesWashington and LA Weekly covered the project, which leverages MxR’s FAAST middleware created by post-doc Evan Suma. With the open-source FAAST, which is based on the OpenNI library, users can replace keyboard strokes with body movements, as they demonstrate with their Gmail Motion video. Other more serious applications and research initiatives include using FAAST to develop applications for physical therapy and rehabilitation purposes.
