You’ve got a dozen windows open, your media player is buried underneath somewhere, and the phone rings. Do you reach for the speaker power button, dig through the windows, or simply wave your hand to pause the music? With Flutter, a simple gesture is all it takes.
Flutter is a free application for Windows and Mac OS X that turns your webcam into a gesture-recognition tool and your hand into a remote for your media applications. By lifting your your hand palm out, making a fist, or using other simple gestures, you can pause or otherwise interact with your media players.
