Gesture was the first mode of communication for the primitive cave men. Later on human civilization has developed the verbal communication very well. But still nonverbal communication has not lost its weightage. Such non – verbal communication are being used not only for the physically challenged people, but also for different applications in diversified areas, such as aviation, surveying, music direction etc. It is the best method to interact with the computer without using other peripheral… Expand
