Flutter Adds Gestural Controls to Netflix, YouTube, and More


Flutter, a startup offering free software that allows you to control music and videos on a computer with simple hand gestures, is adding to its repertoire of gestural tricks. The San Francisco-based company is rolling out the ability technology can control content on the Web, too.

The new software, available Firday as an extension for Google’s Chrome browser, lets users play, pause, and skip videos on YouTube and Netflix and tunes on Grooveshark and Pandora.
Gesture controls have been on the rise over the last few years, helped in part by the success of Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensor, which made it possible to control the Xbox with your body.
