It is going to be a very innovative usages of the technology as an outcome of the competition. Gesture recognition is not going to be so useful to the text based users, but it will change the way of computing, computers will become you companion, like two deaf persons talking with each other, it will create that kind of scenario.

"Flip off" is ambiguous. Are you suggestiong a standardized gesture to turn off power to the system? :-)
