Gmail Motion -- The Future of Email?
Google has done it again. When Gmail was originally introduced few years ago, it was a revelation of sorts in terms of services and space it offered, for free. Gmail Motion Beta is Google's yet another attempt at re inventing Email technology. Gmail Motion lets you control Gmail with different body gestures, simple as that. And the best part is, this is not some concept that might be implemented sometime in the future, Gmail Motion is here and you can take the technology for a spin right now!
Gmail Motion - How it Works
Gmail Motion uses your computer's built-in webcam and Google's patented spatial tracking technology to detect your movements and translate them into meaningful characters and commands. Movements are designed to be simple and intuitive for people of all skill levels.
Grouch: I like most of what Google does in developing new technology, especially Google Voice, but I'm more than a little skeptical that this will catch on much past April 1st.
