One of the perks of producing videos for tech start-ups is the excitement of trying out the latest technology before it hits the market. We had great fun working with Botsquare, a new vision technology start-up based in Menlo Park, California. We absolutely loved using neat hand gestures to play, pause, rewind and forward our favorite Hulu movies and iTunes music. We are so excited about the possibilities of this new technology and are psyched about the opportunity to work on a cool promotional video with Botsquare. Our lean and mean Layaco Media team: Carol Gancia – Producer/Director/Editor, Daniel Ogawa – Writer, Andrew Bender – Cinematographer, Anders Osterballe – Gaffer, Bradley Johnson – Gaming Engineer by day/Actor by night, Navneet Dalal & Priyanka Rana – our fab clients and fabulous provider of all the props used during the shoot.

Finally. No more popcorn debris and greasy fingerprints on my keyboard whenever I watch my favorite movie online! Let us know what you think.

Have you seen Google’s April Fool’s Day joke about Gmail Motion and the humorous, absurd mime action of a mailman character demonstrating vision technology? In 3 days, it got over 4 million Youtube hits. Not bad for an April Fool’s Day joke. I can bet Google is working on this technology for real as we speak. In the meantime, enjoy our favorite search engine’s sense of humor.
