Abstract :
The rapid growth of computing has made effective human-computer interaction essential. It is important for the growing number of computer users whose schedules will not allow the elaborate training and experience that was once necessary to take advantage of computing. As computing affects more aspects of our lives, the need for usable systems becomes even more important. An attempt has been made to develop a few basic tools for Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and show how these can be used a basis for developing more advanced applications. The major component used in the project is OpenCV, which is an open-source image processing library developed by Intel. Basic interaction with the computer has been achieved using hand-held aids like colored thimbles. The ability to recognize the position of the fingers without these aids has also been explored. These simple techniques illustrate the steps required to achieve primitive interaction. These can be extended to achieve better interaction, both in terms of accuracy and scope.
