Google works hard on its April Fool's jokes. This year, it unveiled something called Gmail Motion which allowed people to control their mail application using gestures, along with
a video explaining how it worked.
But in an interesting twist, researchers at the University of Southern California's ICT MxR Lab, have come up with a way to
turn the joke into reality
based on a programme called SLOOW (Software Library Optimizing Obligatory Waving) and a hacked Microsoft Kinect. I like the line about them trying the Google programme but it not working. Anyway, it's worth a look. Who knows, this could be the mail of the future.
