dc.description.abstract The ability to interact with computers through methods other than keyboard and mouse has begun to shape the modern computing experience. Gesture Recognition shows significant promise as it offers an intuitive and personal means to interact with a computer. However, contemporary gesture recognition is still in its infancy and is difficult to offer in applications without proprietary libraries such as the Microsoft Kinect's SDK. To encourage broader adoption of gesture recognition the author details the implementation of pyGesture, an open-source/free software library for the python programming language. The library provides a simple base class which can be extended to easily allow gesture input. The library implements two different means of gesture recognition - by regression based and dynamic time warping algorithms. en_US
