Medical image exploration via Kinect

In this video, an open-source system (MITO) for a controller-free, highly interactive exploration of medical images is presented. By using a Microsoft Xbox Kinect as the only input device, the system's user interface allows users to interact at a distance through hand and arm gestures. Since the user interface is touch-free and does not require complex calibration steps, it is suitable for use in operating rooms, where non-sterilizable devices cannot be used.
