This was addressed within the first few minutes of the 'talk'.

The off the shelf components are a great start for 'this is what we have
already, its somewhat workable and ugly!' ... integrating everything or
something along those lines into a 'sexier tinier' version is much further
down the road after a lot of the UI is ironed out.

Someone pointed out 'common gesture vs command' -- i imagine there's
*something* you do to tell it to pay attention.

Similarly -- what if two people standing face to face wear one of these
things, surely they'd end up sending commands to each other 'accidentally'
? Finger hacking ?  New form of cybersex ?
