Default Google motion sensor...very silly

Gmail Motion BETA

I found this rather comical to watch. I cannot imagine doing this to communicate unless I wanted to throw someone the BIRD!

well that body language is funny but if you can customize it then it would be better than mouse gesture...

btw its also perfect for people who cant type the keyboard very quickly (or have a difficult time with keyboard)... and for deaf people too...

I sent this to the staff today (~120 folks) as exciting new technology to implement. They should know better than to believe me, especially today...

Kinect kind of does this already, no?

But yes, I knew right away it wasn't true because Google always pulls stuff like this on April Fools
