This paper describes applications of a gesture-based user interface device and its integration into application software. It describes the glove input device used, the gesture recognition software and the integration of the device into application software with the help of a context framework. The system has been used in a number of demonstration applications ranging from desktop applications to the control of a mobile robot. We present preliminary results from user feedback given at a public demonstration of the system.
