Hailing from Vanier College in Montreal, my name is Rami Sayar and I am a student in the Health Sciences. I am an active member of Science Plus at Vanier College which is an enriched science program. I plan on going into Engineering at McGill but I have interests in all aspects of science. In fact, my project is about human computer interfaces and gesture recognition, a topic of great interest to me due to its mathematical and computer science aspects. It is my attraction to science and research that led me to participate in the Science Fair and I am proud to have reached the Canada-Wide Science Fair. Furthermore, I can not wait to participate in the MILSET International Fair this summer. Throughout Science Fair, I have won many new friends; have gained unforgettable memories and unparalleled experiences.

Abstract:With explosive computing growth, the keyboard and mouse have become inefficient and counterintuitive. The objective will be to develop a motion controlled human interface to specific applications in medicine, engineering and navigation. The computing world should adapt to our movements and our intentions not the other way around.
