Microsoft Research Gestures at Me (video)

Really great walking tour with Kevin Schofield of Microsoft Research.

This is a 50-minute monster. Not for the faint of heart.

But, if you do the download, make sure and catch what starts at around 36:00. It is f**king awesome.

What is Andy Wilson (the guy who did Bill Gates’ CES keynote demo last year) showing?

A video camera. Aimed at his hands. The picture above gives you a hint. His hands are controlling the keyboard — without touching anything.

The software he wrote is magical. You gotta see the video.

The rest of the video is interesting too. Oh, and you see Buzz Bruggeman, CEO of Activewords, ducking in behind Kevin in a few places in the video too. Anyway, enjoy.

UPDATE: I should have linked to Kevin’s blog.

Oh, and did you catch my plug of Valleyschwag?

UPDATE2: someone took just the Andy Wilson piece of the video and uploaded it to YouTube.
