Navigating Websites Using Your Webcam

Just came across Hal Riney & Partners’ new website, which lets you navigate around by waving your arms in front of your screen (kind of like that computer interface on Minority Report). It uses your computer’s webcam to track your arm gestures. I thought it was fascinating, then got really tired of waving my arms around (hey, it’s early and I’m not a morning person). Then I learned I can trigger it while drinking from my coffee mug, so I just used that instead. Now that’s how web navigation ought to be. Sip to the left, sip to the right. Eat your heart out, Tom Cruise.
