This has got to be one of the most original, intuitive pieces of software I have ever used. FluidTunes is basically an application that gives you a more fun and hands on (quite literally!) way to change songs in your iTunes library.

It lets you control your music using only a webcam and your hands, feet or head. To scroll through your library, you simply need to brush your hands across the cover flow interface on the screen, and a song can be played by just waving over the play button.

So right now, you're probably thinking: "This all sounds too good to be true!" And to be fair... you're absolutely correct. It takes ages to browse through your music as it's presented song by song, as opposed to by artist or album. Odd movements you make can sometimes spark unwanted actions, like playing the wrong song, or scrolling the wrong way. And the background has to contrast with whatever you use to control your music, or sometimes the camera doesn't recognise your actions.
