Just when you thought that those enterprising third-party┬áChromecast developers have tried everything, they’re taking it one step further: Leon Nicholls, who previously experimented with local content playback, online shopping and other cool stuff on Chromecast, has managed to hook up his Kinect to a web app running on Google’s new TV stick. The result is a video playing via Chromecast that can be controlled with simple gestures, and us wondering what folks like Nicholls come up with next.

  1. We are a group of technology enthusiastic students based in Toronto, Canada.

    We have developed a computer-vision product called Flowton Controller – combining the beautiful industrial design, gesture control, and voice recognition, aiming to bring the first NI (natural interaction) device to the modern homes.

    We have just launched our kickstarter campaign with our working prototype and design vision, we appreciate anyone to check out and let us know what you think. Thanks for the support!
