Abstract:

  • This paper describes the development of a vision-based finger tracking system for media art; the system utilizes an infrared camera and a Kalman filter to accomplish this finger recognition image processing technology. The system is stable and fast, and is able to recognize not only gestures but also the speeds of gestures. Our work, called the “Narrative Hand”, switches movies to show the speed at which users close their hands. Our system was exhibited for six days at ACM SIGGRAPH 2001 Emergent Technologies, and many visitors experienced it.
