Using the depth image from Kinect, we present a novel method to archive the Hand Gesture Recognition (HGR). Firstly we overview the major technical components of the complete method. Then we elaborate several key challenges such as palm recognition, contour analysis and fingertip detection. We present the Biggest concave point detect schemes to contour analysis which is the key to achieving the HGR. Finally, we demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the method by running the system.
