👋 Zesture — Control your Music, Movies and Slides with Hand Gestures (Touch-Free).

Short Description

👋 Zesture is a Mac/Windows app that uses your laptop’s camera (and AI) to give you touch-free control over your media, entertainment and presentation applications (without any extra hardware). It increases your productivity and makes your life easier and comfortable by letting you control your laptop/desktop from a distance.

Long Description

In the present time of Covid-19 pandemic, frequent touching of screens and surface of devices such as mouse and keyboard is a potential source of bacteria and infection. We will be touching as little as possible in the coming weeks, months, and even years. That’s why we believe that the future of human-computer interaction is touchless.

👋 Zesture has taken the lead in this direction by coming up with a novel Mac/Windows application that allows people to control their laptop/desktop screens using hand gestures (touch-free). Nearly, all major audio, video and presentations apps have been elegantly consolidated by Zesture for providing touch-free control.
