What is hand gesture recognition?
If you are an active user of online communication platforms, you can't help but wonder what else their developers can come up with to make remote work and collaboration even more convenient and productive. While they announce calls arranged in augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), you still haven't worked out how to use gesture recognition.
Let's figure it out together. After all, our Whoosh team has also implemented it, and we can't wait for you to start using it.
First, a little bit of theory.
Hand gesture recognition is an up-and-coming technology that has a variety of potential applications. One such application is online communication. In a video meeting, a gesture recognition system can be used to control the user interface and interact with other participants. Users can adjust the volume of voice and the position of a window on the screen, virtually raise hands, or share their reactions with sign language. This smart feature can also be used to recognize emotions by analyzing the leap motion. Besides, such technology is often used for voice recognition. You must have noticed that our app (and many others like Google Meet) is able to detect who is speaking right now.
