Being at home you can have fun at play computer by moving your hands in the air as if you were playing with the Wii but without contraptions in your hand. Hands-free games are those that exploit the monitor webcam or the camera connected to the computer.
Thanks to a system of movement detection, webcam games, although very simple, they are very fun to play for both children and adults.
These games are playable only at home and not in workplaces or in the office because they have the side effect of making the players that move in front of the screen look crazy.

The websites that offer online games with the webcam are many, but those that make fun and cute games available that are not just nonsense, are very few. In any case, the webcam must be connected to the computer or the monitor must work.
All the Online games that take advantage of the webcam are flash and require permission to use the computer’s webcam and transmit the footage online. Filming is never visible or recorded from the outside.
If you do not have Flash installed on your computer or you are not sure, download and install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

You can choose the game by scrolling the list upwards using your hands and pressing the buttons so that the visible hand on the screen “touches” the menus. Note that on Webcam Mania the mouse does not work. To choose the games you have to flick through the list with your hand and then press ok with your hand still on the bottom left button.
