Microsoft Kinect for home automation [Projects]
Kinect is the popular Microsoft device which can track gestures, count people in a room and their position. Are available open source libraries for Linux and Windows to control Kinect. Follow the link at the end of this article if you want to write your own Kinect application and integrate it with Freedomotic. When you have a gesture recognition application it's easy to leverage all the other Freedomotic features and plugins to control your home with full-body gestures. For example you can make a light bulb increase brigthness when you walk closer to it or use your hands to increase/decrease TV volume.
Comment below and let us know a possible application of Kinect + Freedomotic you would like to have.
