Abstract : In the past decade, more stress has been given to user interface since technology is made available to every human being. This includes advancement of touch technology over buttons and many more gesture control mechanisms. These technologies enable even a laymen to better use the day-to-day technologies like cell phone and personal computer easily with navigation. This work focuses on one such technology that can be implemented on a PC (Personal Computer). We use single web camera as input device to recognize gestures of hand. Some of these gestures include controlling the mouse cursor, the clicking actions, and few shortcuts for opening specific applications. This work includes Face Recognition model as an replacement for default lock screen. The Face Recognition model uses Viola and Jones method for detection of face and PCA (Principal Component Analysis) for recognition and identification of algorithms.
