Flutter uses GESTURES detected via built-in camera in your computer to play, pause and skip songs & videos in YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, Grooveshark, iTunes, Netflix, and more. It also allows you to control slide shows in Apple's Keynote using hand gestures.

Google paid about $40 million, according to Internet reports, for Flutter’s technology – used on websites like YouTube, Pandora and Netflix via webcam.


All six of Flutter’s employees, including founders Navneet Dalal and Mehul Nariyawala, will join the Google team as a result of the deal. Dalal said he and his associates are happy with the agreement.

Dalal said, “We are thrilled to announce that we will be continuing our research at Google. We share Google’s passion for 10x thinking, and we’re excited to add their rocket fuel to our journey.”

“We’re really impressed by the Flutter team’s ability to design new technology based on cutting-edge research. We look forward to supporting and collaborating on their research efforts at Google,” said a Google spokesperson.

Flutter is the brains behind the Mac App, Kinect for OSX, which uses hand gestures to detect movements using webcams installed in devices like MacBooks and iPads. It allows users to control programs like iTunes and Spotify.

We hope that someday Google will definitely apply it on its Nexus devices.
