From the News Desk - Using Hand Gestures to Drive CAD?!?

“Drawing is like making an expressive gesture with the advantage of permanence.”
Henri Matisse

There have been times that I've wondered if in a few years, we'll all be looking at the mouse and keyboard and think "Hard to believe that's how we used to design!" 

But in the same breath I've also thought; What will replace it? 

Virtual Reality?  Holograms?  A data port implanted in the side of the designers head?  That question still floats out there.

Maybe that input hasn't been fully developed yet   I still can't see giving up my  3D Connexion SpacePilot Pro yet.... 

I suddenly feel like grasping my SpacePilot to my chest and yelling, "From my cold, dead, hand!".

But perhaps the folks at SpaceX may have given us a glimpse into the future. 

What if the CAD model could be controlled using hand gestures.

Not THAT gesture.  Stay with me, people!  

Check out the video below.  Have we seen a glimpse of a world yet to come?
