Navigate Photosynth with Gestures


I just randomly came across this video on YouTube which I thought was pretty impressive. A company called YDreams has created a small hack to navigate Microsoft Photosynths using gestures. This is done using their device the YDreams SensorBar, which lets you use hand gestures to control your PC.

I’m seeing this company everywhere lately, it seems. And they’re doing all kinds of cool stuff. Before happening upon the Photosynth video, I had also favorited a video of theirs on Vimeo. That one, called “Playing in an Augmented World,” was a demo of some “YDreamers” interacting with virtual elements in real physical setting. As it turns out, the apps they used in that video were developed in C# 3.0 / .NET 3.5. 

This is definitely a company to watch, I’m totally subscribed to their channel now.
