Gesture Watch from Georgia Tech

Activate! The Gesture Watch has five infrared sensors, four of which sense any hand motion that occurs above the watch. If the user is wearing the watch on his left hand, he can move his right hand over the watch in an [...]

Carol Fowler

A scientist called Carol Fowler has apparently done research that mine is related to. I was told so by Dominic Massaro, at the Visual Prosody workshop in Nijmegen MPI. He said that my findings on sign perception are similar to speech perception. Specifically, a delay of about 90 ms between detection and recognition, which I [...]

Gesture Remote Control for TV

Two guys in Australia have given humanity the ultimate killer application for gesture recognition:

Gesture Wellformedness

I am running an experiment on the acceptability of variation in sign language. One of the things that touch upon this matter is sign wellformedness, which supposes a certain sign language phonology with rules that tell whether a sign is wellformed or not. I am not done thinking that one over but it did get [...]
