    generating a model for the person'"'"'s body for each of a plurality of time periods based on the data;

    generating a value for each of a plurality of parameters for each of the models, the value of each of the parameters defines an aspect of the person'"'"'s body that pertains to a level of intent to engage the system;

    aggregating a level of intent to engage the system based on the parameter values for each of the models;

    interpreting selected user actions captured by the motion capture system as input to the system if the aggregated level of intent exceeds a threshold; and

    interpreting the selected user actions captured by the motion capture system as noise if the aggregated level of intent does not exceed the threshold.
