« Gestures are everywhere »

Body and gestures play a primordial role in everyday activities. From a young age, people develop motor skills by interacting with the world. Over time, they accumulate experiences and enrich their abilities. Their body is transformed, allowing them to express, communicate and interact with the environment. New enabling technologies contribute to a deeper understanding of gestures and allow innovative ways to boost the real-sense of experience and participation, such as in the experiential marketing and advertising, technology-enhanced tourism experience, artistic co-creation etc.

Gesture Computing has been selected by Innovathens– Hub of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Technopolis City of Athens, for the Framework of the 5th Business Incubator Cycle aiming to support Creative and Cultural Industries.
