Drones are popular little toys, but they’re not the easiest things to control. While hand gestures may not change that too much, donning a HoloLens and flying a physical object with a wave of your hand at least makes the process feel a lot more like a telekinesis.

Sean Kelly, a HoloLens software engineer at Microsoft, used the BitCraze open-source platform for drone control to design a proof of concept app that uses a HoloLens to track hand gestures for remotely piloting a flier (in this case, BitCraze’s Crazyflie 2.0 drone). While it doesn’t work terribly well just yet, you can see the potential in his video above.
