Now while this looks cool, its the gestures that I'm keen on.

I spoke to Adam Clayton Powell III some time back, who gave me an insight into the work of his students at the Integrated Systems Center at the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of California.

One of the applications, you can see it here, but the sounds not so good.

Students would track buses via satellites. For female students this was immensely desirable as they could stay in doors and see the very moment their bus was drawing up to the bus stop, then calmly walk down stairs.
