In this paper, a real-time Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) based on the hand data glove and K-NN classifier for gesture recognition is proposed. HCI is moving more and more natural and intuitive way to be used. One of the important parts of user's body is user's hand which is most frequently used for the interaction in digital environment and thus complexity and flexibility of motion of hands are the research topics. To recognize these hand gestures more accurately and successfully data glove is used. Here, gloves are used to capture current position of the hand and the angles between the joints and then these features are used to classify the gestures using K-NN classifier.
