Gesture based computing is one possible answer to the user interface question raised by ubiquitous computing, and I was therefore really interested to see Minority Cube (via digg and MAKE: Blog). This is gesture based computing out in the wild, if you can do this with Flash, to control a cube on a screen, why not something a bit more distributed?

Minority Cube allows you to control the rotation of the cube on the screen by moving your hand (or yourself) in front of your webcam. It understands up, down, left, right and screw (a motion a bit like if you're trying to screw a light bulb into your webcam's lens)... - Mario Klingemann
