CogniMem Technologies, maker of the CM1K neural network chip, is working to bring hand and finger gesture recognition to Kinect games on the Xbox 360.

By distinguishing between an open palm and a closed fist, we are able to recognize a “grab” gesture that can be used to control games which involve a drag-and-drop mechanic. In this video, we describe the approach and show how it can be used in games, including drawing shapes and controlling the puzzler World of Goo, in which you drag-and-drop balls of goo to build a structure.

We will be demonstrating this technology live at the CVPR conference this June, where we will show both the ability to recognize this simple gesture in software, and the ability to accelerate this algorithm using our hardware.
