It's not the most ridiculous one ever, it's just about using gesture sensing through a webcam to control Gmails interface.

The ironic thing is though this could actually be done using today's technology, I wouldn't be surprised if someone (perhaps even Google) did roll it out at some point. Apart from the gestures to type at the end of the video of course!

I love the youtube 1911 though
