Controlling computer games and other applications with motion-based gestures has become common in the last decade. In this paper we present a method to recognize relatively complex gestures with a simple, fast and yet reliable classifier algorithm. More specifically, the purpose of the classifier is to recognize large gestures, as measured with the accelerometers and gyro sensors present in the Wii remote controller. The classifier is used and tested in the context of a computer game that forces the player to make large movements. The outcomes confirm that only large gestures are recognized correctly, leading to successful play. Therefore, the classifier might be particular useful for designers of exertion games.
