In this video, Microsoft showcases their Handpose, a system that is able to track and recreate the movements of the hand. The video demonstrates how this can be used to manipulate virtual objects.

Introducing a new real-time articulated hand tracker which can enable new possibilities for human-computer interaction (HCI). Our system accurately reconstructs complex hand poses across a variety of subjects using only a single depth camera. It also allows for a high-degree of robustness, continually recovering from tracking failures. However, the most unique aspect of our tracker is its flexibility in terms of camera placement and operating range.
