Handy is gesture control technology for the browser that lets you play, pause and rewind videos with a wave of your hand.
Working with Unilever we created Handy, an innovative browser based technology that uses simple hand gestures to control video. The technology lends itself to helping people follow cooking tutorials in a messy kitchen. We produced a responsive web app that made the most of this by enabling users to find, watch and save their favourite recipes from YouTube.

A helping hand
Handy is a new technology, so we created a fun CSS animated walkthrough to help our users get to grips the basics.
No install required
Handy was built for the browser, whether on a mobile, tablet or desktop. It harnesses new browser technology which allows live access to the camera. This means users can instantly use the technology without the need for download.
