Touch-free gesture control systems seem to be the flavor of the season as far as researchers and scientists are concerned.

And now, a team from the Fraunhofer Technical Institute in Germany has created a similar system that can detect multiple hands and doesn't require users to wear special gloves, unlike most gesture controlled systems out there. The FIT system identifies the position of fingers and hands and tracks them accurately, all in real time.
