The Virtual Air Guitar Project
categories: Geeky, Videos

The Virtual Air Guitar project, developed at the Helsinki University of Technology, adds genuine electric guitar sounds to the air guitar. Using a computer to monitor the hand movements of the ‘player’, it adds riffs and licks to match mid-air finger work. The player wears a pair of brightly coloured gloves, enabling computer vision software to keep track of their hands and detect different gestures.

That has to be one of the best ideas ever.
