Google has bought a startup that produces gesture recognition technology that controls popular apps via webcam.

Flutter, a San Francisco-based startup backed by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator, launched approximately 18 months ago to develop gesture recognition technology for Mac and Windows apps.

Some of the apps that can be controlled by Flutter’s solutions include YouTube, Pandora, Grooveshark, and Netflix. With Google as the new owner, presumably some sort of Android and/or Chrome support is on the agenda.
