A Webcam commanded OS

Registered by Pierre Slamich on 2006-04-22

A dream for post Dapper:
Being able to command the system via a webcam just like in movies (Minority Report not to quote it)
This is feasible though difficult and would definitely be a killer app if implemented correctly

Whiteboard

I have a few links for you - at first, a speech which will be hold at the 23. Chaos Communication Congress 23C3 in Berlin (german):
http://events.ccc.de/congress/2006/Fahrplan/events/1604.en.html

And here you can find stuff to realize that:

IMHO its nice, but first there should be better webcam support in general, or this Feature Specification is useless.
