Yes, there has been a lot of research on this, and gestures plus 
speech have a big future. It is feasible to recognize simple hand 
gestures using conventional web cams, but you really need very large 
screens to make it pay off. There are also concerns over fatigue 
when fine movements need to be frequently repeated. However that 
also applies to today's mouse and trackpad.
