1. A method of controlling operation of a computing device based on gesture detection, the method comprising:

  • detecting, by a three-dimensional object detection module of a gesture component of the computing device, an input based on received radar signals that have been reflected off of an object;

    transforming, by the gesture component, raw data of the radar signals into one or more different representations that represent shape information about the object;

    extracting, by the gesture component, three-dimensional feature information about the object from the transformed raw data of the radar signals;

    recognizing, by the gesture component, a three-dimensional gesture performed by the object, the recognizing based on a comparison of the extracted feature information about the object from the radar signals with a library of gestures maintained by the gesture component;

    recognizing, by the gesture component, an operation that corresponds to the three-dimensional gesture using the library of gestures; and

    exposing, by the gesture component, an indication of the operation by the gesture component via an application programming interface for receipt by at least one application executed by the computing device to cause the at least one application to control performance of the operation.
