DepthJS connects any web page with Kinect's motion-sensing technology to enable hands-off web navigation.

The folks at the MIT Media Lab have created a web browser extension using Microsoft’s Kinect that allows browsing the web simply using gestures. DepthJS is an open-source project that enables interaction of a web page with the Kinect’s motion-sensing technology via Javascript.

Here’s what the creators themselves think of gesture-based browsing:

Navigating the web is only one application of the framework we built – that is, we envision all sorts of applications that run in the browser, from games to specific utilities for specific sites. The great part is that now web developers who specialize in Javascript can work with the Kinect without having to learn any special languages or code. We believe this will allow a new set of interactions beyond what we first developed.
