Adafruit on PBS – video!

How ‘gesture technology’ like the Microsoft Kinect will change the way we live… Adafruit appears at the 2:00 minute-ish mark, great segment!

Here’s a term you may not have heard yet — but we can just about guarantee that you will. It’s called “gesture technology” — using our body movements to control a computer. No keyboard, no mouse. It may just represent a major leap in how we will communicate in digital world. It might sound like just another way to sell gaming devices, but this story is about how gaming technology is being used to change the way we live.

  1. Wow I knew of the bounty and first hack, but I had no idea that the Kinect was “exploding” into such a frenzy around the world. It’s amazing what has been done with it already and only a short time separates us from some really well done interfaces.

    Congrats on being at the forefront of this revolution Adafruit!
