Google acquires hand gesture interface startup Flutter

Let’s not also forget that Google is exploring new ways to further interact with computers, beyond simply using the keyboard and mouse — almost like something straight out of Minority Report. The company has Gmail Motion that users can test to control their email simply by using their body motion. Maybe integration with Chromebooks, such as the Pixel could also be in the works?

What’s more, Flutter had planned on implementing a business model whereby it would license its technology to software companies that would want to integrate the hand gesturing into their own apps. This could clearly open up new opportunities for those building on Android.
