From March to September 2007 I've been busy working for my Computer Science bachelor thesis at
Università di Salerno, Italy.
I've been working under the supervision of Professor Vittorio Scarano in the friendly and stimulating environment of ISISLab.
I've been "playing" with a VR glove (the 5DT Data Glove 16) and a motion tracking system (the Intersense PCTracker), interfacing such hardware with the Quest3D engine and writing support software allowing gesture recognition to be utilized in different applications.
This is a demo video of what was accomplished:
