Controlling GNOME 3 With Skeltrack 18

dartttt writes with an excerpt from Ubuntu Vibes: "Skeltrack is a Free Software (GPL3) library by Igalia for tracking the human skeleton joints from depth images. It is implemented with GLib and uses plain mathematics to detect the human skeleton and although it does not use any database, it was inspired by Andreas Baak's paper: "A Data-Driven Approach for Real-Time Full Body Pose Reconstruction from a Depth Camera" Skeltrack devs have recorded very cool videos showing Gnome Shell and Linux games being controlled through gestures."

    If it requires Gnome 3, I predict it won't be a big seller...

  • Those extensions now get a whole new function!

  • To send a email nastygram top the supreme court justices whein it recognises a "flipped the bird" gesture. For their wonderful decisions endorsing "save the mouse" infinite copyright extensions, stripping the public domain of works retroactively and allowing the strip searching people (minors?) accused of littering.
  • I've been using Gnome Shell for the past week or so and it's surprisingly usable. At first glance it seems like it'd get in your way but it really doesn't.
  • Not Ginect?

    Sorry, for years and years I've seen GNU trying to out-innovate by copying and predictably rebranding the other guy's stuff. Not more but less. Not YACC but bison. (And I say this as a GNOME desktop fan, though I spit on Unity like all the other GNOME desktop fans.) For over a decade, the GNOME naming battles has been K versus G. So when I saw that there was a GNOME version of Kinect, I just assumed that out of pure habit it would be called Ginect.
