Nice video. Did you work on that project or are you working on
something similar?

You could use the library in it's current state to provide a richer
set of gestures. Here are some examples showing a vocabulary of
gestures being trained and then recognized: (iPhone gesture classification) (mouse gesture on-line recognition)

You could do something similar in the system shown in your video, at
least with single-touch gestures (maybe they could be used as
shortcuts to some of the functions otherwise accessible through the

There was also a nuicode GSoC project this year that used the library
for multi-touch gestures:

The system works pretty well, but I don't think there is much
documentation at this point.

Would any of this be useful to you?
