Pointing Gesture for HoloLens?
I'm trying to add the possibility to find out if the HoloLens user is pointing somewhere with a finger. I haven't been able to find a good solution yet. Does anyone know a good solution for this?
This is what I tried so far:
My first thought was to look into object recognition:
- I tried OpenCV for Hololens. Details: https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10636/hololens-opencv#latest
- I tried HoloLensForCV. https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10679/issues-with-hololensforcv#latest
- I tried OpenCVForUnity. The HoloLens example with facial recognition works. But the Code is confusing and I don't get much help from the support.
- I looked into microsoft cognitive services. In this topic someone suggested a blog post that seemed promising. https://forums.hololens.com/discussion/10918/different-object-recognition-methods-for-hololens#latest But after training my model more and more it simply stopped working. Details: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52555299/custom-vision-on-hololens There is also the Project Gesture which I also don't know if it works for HoloLens and if so how.
So I would be thankful for any suggestion, advice, tutorial etc. Where do I even start or continue to work. I'm kind of stuck now.
