    Gesture recognition technology enables new means of user communication and interaction with machines. This work focuses on gesture recognition by analyzing data, obtained by motion sensors, in the cloud. We present Interact, a cloud based gesture recognition system that uses FIWARE. To pro-mote the development of Future Internet (FI) applications, all functionalities of Interact are offered as cloud services, enabling elasticity, lower cost of maintenance and off-site efficient data storage. To promote productivity, Interact offers a REST API for recognizing, storing and managing customized gesture collections in the cloud as well as for subscribing to sensors. The system is sensor independent and is designed to be compliant with the most popular motion sensors (i.e., Leap Motion or Kinect). To demonstrate the functionalities of Interact, a system prototype has been developed utilizing the LEAP Motion sensor, offering all the previously described functionalities. The prototype is hosted on FIWARE Lab and is available for testing.
