Hands-on with 'Project Prague,' Microsoft's gesture controls for Windows apps (video)

Microsoft recently launched its new Cognitive Services Lab at Build 2017, and one of the first projects to come out of it is Project Prague, an SDK that lets developers easily add gesture-based controls to their apps. We got a quick demonstration of Project Prague in action on the show floor, and the results are pretty amazing. Check it out below:

Project Prague is still in early development, but it's a pretty neat look at what can be done with a bit of code and an Intel RealSense SR300 camera. Though it's only available in a limited release, developers who are interested in experimenting with the Project Prague SDK in their own apps can learn more and apply at the Cognitive Services Labs site.
