Controlling Secondlife with a Hand Gesture

Too lazy to type or use your mouse? Ever wanted just active something in secondlife with just the use of a hand gesture?

No,  not the two finger type, but that may work. Well, the days of what we saw in the film minority report could be coming a step closer and an experiment using a computer controlled hand gesturing system called Leap Motion are showing some interesting results.

Whether it will be as intuitive as using a mouse, I don't know or even if it will ever be implemented into any of the SL viewer, but its interesting all the same. Have a look at the demo and links to the system used and Hollywood's ideas off how stuff like this could be used in the future.
