I don't see the significance of this. The camera reads what your play (move) is, decides what the winning move is, then executes that.
If there was some machine learning or proof of predicting the winning play - that would be worthy of note.

Instead, take a moment to understand my comment: This is nothing new, gesture recognition has been done for quite some time.
The significance you missed here : for the lulz.
I stand corrected...lulz indeed.
