Hello group!:

I write this message to a proposal which I have made the WHATWG group:
Ian Hickson and Dominique Hazael-Massieux has answered me that I expose the
proposal here, for you can discuss and study this proposal.

Basically, my proposal for HTML5 (getUserMedia) is to make it functional
with Kinect, SoftKinetic, Asus Xtion, and similar devices to interact with
the web.
Logically, Kinect is the device most commonly used, would be ideal for this

I think it will become increasingly common to use these devices and should
start to be a solution to them for the web. In the present may not be as
important to this proposal, but in the future will be. Surely, these
devices replace the webcams and included as standard on all computers.

Also, users would have an advance on the web. Because really, I mean just
to give you support to make gestures to browse the web, but for more useful
Some interesting features for the web would be:

*- Online shopping or Online retailing*: Want to buy clothes, but do not
know what size you are using actually. Online stores may have an option to
run Kinect and scan your body to tell you the correct size for you, for
that article.We could even see if that shirt looks good on you or not.
- Webs fitness/rehabilitation:* While this can be considered as a
videogame, I see it more as an application. It would check if the person is
performing well exercise, getting not cause any injury. Rhythm of physical
exercise, and progress in their mobility.
- Webs makeup/hair salon:* With face recognition, could learn/test
different makeup on the market. Obviously these products would be tested
virtually, and then could be purchased.

*- Possible support for Canvas:* Interact with Canvas, via Kinect. For
example, draw on the screen. Although this can be done also with multitouch

I appreciate your interest in reading and studying the proposal.

Regards to all group members.
