Hipster geeks around the world, I have a treat for you--well actually, Robert Wang is the one with the treat. Wang recently developed an exciting new gestural system that requires only this nifty pair of colorful gloves and a webcam.

Unlike other systems that are in fact 2D, Robert Wang's gestural interface involves the entire hand rather than just random fingertip interactions. This would allow users to manipulate objects in virtual reality as they would in real life. Stats for Techtastic Jazz Hands Trending: Older & Average
