Hi .. guys .. I found no better place to ask .. so I decided to post it here ...

Has anyone made the tracking fingers under linux any real implementation ?

What I mean .. I would like to use the tracking fingers for everyday use... using it simply ..
instead of mouse ..

Click start ... Firefox... whatever ... spinning the cube

If that has been done .. can anyone refer me to the correct place/howto ?

I am extremely interested in this as well

but i would like to see it taken a step further.

If you were to use two  inferred cams

one facing the viewer from the screen as usual

and the other further away and to the side you could capture
the position of the users fingers in 3d
this has been done with the we bare on a hat or two dots you head

but this would be of much hire resolution and allow you to move you
also calculating the distance between to dots will not work for fingers
because you cant get two dots on a finger far enuf apart to to calculate there distance from
a single cam

dose any one get what i am saying?
