Here's another research project: a virtual hand!

Clearly the best interface would be a data glove, but layer properties like this could also work.

Skin colour can be adjusted with the COLOUR property.

And let's not forget our alien friends by adding a 3 finger option!

Michiel, Congratulations on your creation, God enlighten you always.

Thank you all for your enthusiastic response!

We've started working on the presets, which is a lot of fun but also tricky because gestures can have totally different meanings. For example the upper left gesture means excellent in Holland, but is an insult in other parts of the world. Risky business :)

Yes indeed it is not a compliment when it is adressed to somebody here in France. I am sure you can create an alphabet.

Great test material Vincent, thanks!

A human hand has 27 bones. Creating a layer property for every bone would make the user interface too complex so we have to simplify. I'm hoping 5 properties, 1 for every finger, will be enough. But you have to test to be sure. The thumb is by far the most challenging one.
