Hand Gesture Recognition for Scrolling the page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi did you have idea to add additional function to IE to scroll the webpage via hand or arm using usually webcam?  Scroll the window by hand gesture. To scroll the window of browser with hand for reading the web on public, TV sets or just in toilet. When we don’t have the opportunity to use other interfaces e.g . Flutter App. That will very useful.

  • No, if Microsoft were to do that it would be as an input method, not as an IE addon.

    If you are talking about PC, this is already possible via Kinect for Windows SDK. Doubt a tablet user would use webcam gesture instead of touch because of the battery consumption and computation required by gesture recognition.
