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

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:

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?
