Can anyone please give me a gist of how should one develop a browser plugin or a Windows 8 app that recognizes hand gestures from the in built web camera?
The tools, the apis, the platform, some rough idea of how I should proceed would be very helpful.
Something, like when I wave my hand right, the window should swipe left.
Thanks a lot!

A browser plug-in?! You ask like the recognition itself is not a problem for you. Is it really so? :-)

Please see my comment to the question. It looks like you think this is pretty easy. Think again.
Please look at this CodeProject article: Hands Gesture Recognition[^].

I totally agree with you. Andrew Kirillov's articles are always great. Here is another article I find interesting and it makes it look simple, so maybe that is what the OP is looking for

Thank you, Soren.
I know the work you referenced, an interesting one.

By the way, I knew Andrew's work for a long time, but only recently used AForge.NET for image recognition for my work, was very much pleased with robustness and performance of a good number of algorithms.
