Objective: The idea is to upload files into cloud using gestures. A “Gesture” is a form of movement of part of a body, especially the hand or the head, to express an action. Waving of the hand over the phone is used as a gesture to export files into the cloud. Methods/Analysis: The type of the file to be uploaded into the cloud can be either a picture or a video. This is accomplished using an application similar to gallery. To perform the task, the application is invoked to view a picture or video, when the hand is waved over the phone. The gesture is recognized and the currently viewed file is uploaded into the cloud. The cloud service used here for uploading is Dropbox. The size of the media files is generally large and uploading it will take time, so the size is reduced through a compression algorithm. There is a buffer which tracks the uploading part and will see to that, that the entire media file is uploaded into the cloud. Findings: Through this application the file can be uploaded into the cloud through a gesture easily and effectively. Also, it is found that the application developed is found to be stable in tough testing conditions. Application/Improvements: This app reduces the human effort to a large scale and most importantly it does not occupy more space in the handheld device.The same app can be further ported to IOS for apple phones and IPads.
