Matlab code that locates hands and face in an image sequence and tracks movement of hands in 2D. This is a naive, yet fast implementation, based on skin color tracking and motion estimation. This software is optimized for use in 'desktop HCI' sequences, i.e when the user is sitting behind a desk. Sample video sequences are also available.
