Google Unveils "Gmail Motion Beta" Enable Users To Control Gmail Using Body Motion

Gmail Motion BetaFearing motion sensing technologies developed by rivals like Microsoft Kinect and Opera Face Gestures, Google has now came up with their very own motion-sensing technology allowing users to control Gmail using body gestures.

Named "Gmail Motion BETA" the technology aims to provide an alternative to keyboard and mouse used traditionally for human-computer interaction, Gmail Motion recognizes users body movements using computer's built-in webcam and Google's patented "spatial tracking technology" effectively translating them into meaningful characters and commands. Movements are designed to be simple and intuitive for people of all skill levels. The company also plans to expand the new motion detection technology to Google Docs (Google Docs Motion) later this year.

Google Translate For Animals - Bridging The Gap Between Animals And Humans

In another step towards world domination Google Inc. today announced release of their latest beta product - "Google Translate For Animals".

Google Translate For Animals

Official Introduction :

Making the world's information universally accessible is a key goal for Google. Language is one of our biggest challenges so we have targeted our efforts on removing language barriers between the species. We are excited to introduce Translate for Animals, an Android application which we hope will allow us to better understand our animal friends. We've always been a pet-friendly company at Google, and we hope that Translate for Animals encourages greater interaction and understanding between animal and human.

Translate for Animals is an application for Android phones that recognises and transcribes words and phrases that are common to a species, like cats for example. To develop Translate for Animals, we worked closely with many of the world's top language synthesis teams, and with leaders in the field of animal cognitive linguistics, including senior fellows at the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

Control Web-Browser With Face Gestures

Opera Labs is doing some extra-ordinary research in terms of new web-browser features and after introducing Opera Turbo they seem to have gone too far with experimenting introducing face gestures in the latest snapshot builds of Opera 10, the concept of controlling your web-browser with facial expressions sounds pretty cool but after seeing the video demo with man making funny faces to control the web-browser, I decided to stick with keyboard and mouse combination for a while, jokes apart the technology seems promising considering the evolution of touch devices where such functionality can be handy, I am very much sure that Opera will tweak this facial-gesture technology further to create something useful.
