Gmail Motion April Fool Day Prank Is Not A Jock Anymore (Its Now Real)

Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
Today in this post I will tell and show you about Google’s Gmail Motion Prank. Like ever year on April Fool Day (1st April) Google played many pranks, one of them was Gmail Motion.

The mouse and keyboard were invented before the Internet even existed. Since then, countless technological advancements have allowed for much more efficient human computer interaction. Why then do we continue to use outdated technology? Introducing Gmail Motion — now you can control Gmail with your body.

It was just a prank by Google. But people at ICT MxR Lab made that prank reality, which work using Microsoft Kinect sensor.

This morning, Google introduced Gmail Motion, allowing users to control Gmail using gestures and body movement. However, for whatever reason, their application doesn’t appear to work. So, we demonstrate our solution – the Software Library Optimizing Obligatory Waving (SLOOW) – and show how it can be used with a Microsoft Kinect sensor to control Gmail using the gestures described by Google. This project uses OpenNI coupled with FAAST and was made by Evan Suma and the folks at Mark Bolas’ MxR Lab at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies.
