Dont have my freerunner yet but that really is a great bit of work, keep 
it up, can see this being really useful, only criticism some of the 
gestures seems to be a little, well, over the top, I mean, if I was on 
the bus and I started doing the Z shape for example people would think 
what I was upto, do the gestures have to the this exagerated or was that 
just for the demo so people could clearly see what you were doing?
