Something like this would help people just trying to get started with depthjs. It would have helped me a lot yesterday :).

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for doing this. We might pull it in soon, but everything is being very actively developed right now. We are in the middle of a new gesture recognition algorithm that should be far more robust and generalizable. I also just got the webkit plugin working (at least its sending Safari events).

We still need to polish the API for webpages, and deal with a lot of other issues. We aren't ready for mainstream adoption just yet.

What is a hover event? For using the mouse? Or just random things on the web page that are 'hoverable'?

With this event, we can notify the web page that the kinect "cursor" is hovering over a link, and the webpage can handle it as it likes.

We have one page where we choose to handle it like the XBox and autoclick after 2 seconds, all the while showing a filling pie chart like image.

We can also update the look of things that the xbox "cursor" is on top of by modifying what .depthjs-hover means.
