Generic pointing gesture recognition system

This result provides a device-less interaction method. The user interacts with his hand and interaction is based on pointing gesture recognition. A 2D pointing direction is calculated and can be used by the application as a simple input device (similar to a 2d-mouse device). Moreover, time triggered select-events are generated, if the user is constantly pointing at a certain direction for a configurable time frame (e.g. 1 sec.). Additionally, specific "interactive regions" can be defined (similar to virtual buttons or hot-spots) to trigger specific events (eg. such as menus).
