This paper represents a comparative study of exiting hand gesture recognition systems and gives the new approach for the gesture recognition which is easy cheaper and alternative of input devices like mouse with static and dynamic hand gestures, for interactive computer applications. Despite the increase in the attention of such systems there are still certain limitations in literature. Most applications require different constraints like having distinct lightning conditions, usage of a specific camera, making the user wear a multi-coloured glove or need lots of training data. The use of hand gestures provides an attractive alternative to cumbersome interface devices for human-computer interaction (HCI). This interface is simple enough to be run using an ordinary webcam and requires little training.
