The technology has been changing day by day, the significance of human and computer interaction has inspired the researchers to stimulate and utilize in various fields. Hand gesture recognition is one of the most active areas of research in computer vision. It provides an easy way to interact with a machine without using any extra devices. Focusing on the essential factors in mind a system has been created which recognize the movement of the finger and various gestures formed by them. Color caps or tapes have been used for fingers to distinguish from the background color such as skin color. Hand gestures rely upon camera based gesture recognition technique. This recognition method mainly focuses on the use of web camera to develop a virtual HCI device in a cost effective manner. The application has been created on MATLAB environment with operating system as Windows 10.
